Is this necessarily the case?
Are racial minorities represented by public defenders or assigned counsel treated more harshly than those represented by private attorneys?
If you were an African American, Hispanic, or Native American defendant and could choose whether to be represented by a public defender or a private attorney, which would you choose? Why?
