The economic crisis has most states facing tough decisions about cuts in services. Florida is among several states that have opted to cut funds from the public defender system, which provides lawyers to poor people charged with crimes. Arthur Jones was a public defender in the Miami-Dade County court system. When Florida slashed the budget, Arthur barely had time to meet some of his clients, let alone spend time at home with his two children. He talks with Dick Gordon about how he came to the decision to quit the job he loved, and why he thinks the health of the criminal justice system matters to all of us.
