|Kevin Paulk, locked up for life for using a toy gun in three robberies|
This Week on Due Process
I first met Kevin Paulk 16 years ago in Trenton State Prison, where he'd been imprisoned under New Jersey's Three Strikes Law. He's still there, and is likely to remain for the rest of his life - for three holdups with a toy gun.
On this edition of Due Process, I return to Trenton and find Paulk still hoping someone will realize his sentence is more severe than that drawn by most convicted murderers.
The Three Strikes Law: an effective deterrent, or a draconian tough-on-crime mistake?
Please join me for our chilling conversation inside a maximum security lockup - and a spirited studio debate between Public Defender Jennifer Sellitti and former Morris County Prosecutor Bob Bianchi.
Yours in justice,Sandy
