SCOTUSblog on camera: David Porter part four

What being heard means to defendants and the reality of the right to counsel on the fiftieth anniversary of Gideon v. Wainwright.

In this five-part series, David Porter talks about direct federal appeals, habeas corpus and “being heard,” changing ideas of crime, terrorism, and punishment; and the realities of “effective assistance of counsel” fifty years after Gideon v. Wainwright. Mr Porter is an Assistant Federal Defender at the Office of the Federal Defender for the Eastern District of California in Sacramento, California.
