Defending the Damned - An Inside Look at the Cook County Public Defender's Murder Task Force

Wednesday
, January 30, 4:00pm

10th Floor Event Room

Featuring Kevin Davis, author of Defending the Damned

and Cook County Assistant Public Defenders:

Woodward Jordan, IIT Alum, 1971

Ruth McBeth

Marijane Placek

Robert Strunck, Chicago-Kent Alum, 1979

From Publishers Weekly:

A colorful lawyer and a cop killing are at the center of this skillfully crafted narrative look at the Murder Task Force of Chicago's public defender's office. A veteran crime reporter, Davis focuses on the case of Aloysius Oliver, a 26-year-old ex-convict charged with fatally shooting undercover police officer Eric Lee. In sharp journalistic prose, Davis portrays a variety of public defenders driven by idealism, ambition and the excitement of legal battles. Davis ably captures the drama of the courtroom and makes a powerful case for the necessity of the often unpopular public defenders within the criminal justice system, conveying their dedication to obtaining justice for their clients.

Copies of Defending the Damned will be available for purchase at the event.

This talk is free and open to all. A reception will follow the event.
