We are rebroadcasting a show from January 9, 2017 because both interviews contain very important information. In our original broadcast we had to edit the Interview with Andrea James to fit our format, the podcast above includes the complete interview.
Families For Justice As Healing
At Families for Justice as Healing, they organize formerly incarcerated women to join the movement toward creating community wellness alternatives to incarceration that heals and rebuilds families and communities.
Their membership advocates for community wellness, public health alternatives to the current U.S. drug policies and legislation that focus on criminalization, the war on drugs and mass incarceration.
Host Keith Brown El talks with Andrea James of the Massachusetts based Families For Justice As Healing about their work with formerly incarcerated women to heal themselves and their community. Ms James also talks about the National Council of Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women and Girls with their efforts to keep women in contact with their children.
The Criminal Appeals Process With Attorney Kent Gipson
(Rebroadcast from August 2016)
For the past 30 years, Kent Gipson has focused his practice exclusively on representing citizens that have been accused or convicted of crimes at both trial and on appeal. Over the years, he has represented dozens of criminal defendants at trial before a jury. In recent years, the bulk of his practice has been devoted to appellate and post-conviction litigation in both state and federal courts in Missouri and in a few other states. Many observers and commentators have described the post-conviction process in state and federal court as a procedural minefield that lays traps for the uninformed or inexperienced prisoner or counsel. If a mistake is made or a deadline missed early on in the process, this could result in procedural bars in later post-conviction proceedings.
On this edition of Jaws of Justice Radio host Latahra Smith talks with local Appellate Lawyer, Kent Gipson about the criminal appeals process and the appellate system on the federal and state level. He will give us a basic understanding of the appellate system and why it is necessary. We hope to learn how it works and why sometimes it doesn’t work.
