Three Felonies a Day

Harvey Silverglate – SIGNED with a special intro by Alan Dershowitz

$89.95

Civil liberties attorney Harvey Silverglate makes the compelling case in Three Felonies A Day that federal prosecutors are abusing their power by using the criminal law to prosecute law-abiding citizens. Silverglate believes that we are in danger of becoming a society in which prosecutors alone become judges, juries and executioners because the threat of high sentences makes it too costly for even innocent people to resist the prosecutorial pressure.

Civil liberties attorney Harvey Silverglate makes the compelling case in Three Felonies A Day that federal prosecutors are abusing their power by using the criminal law to prosecute law-abiding citizens. Silverglate believes that we are in danger of becoming a society in which prosecutors alone become judges, juries and executioners because the threat of high sentences makes it too costly for even innocent people to resist the prosecutorial pressure. Each of us is at risk of becoming a victim due to the multitude of vague and unfamiliar criminal laws that are currently in place and creatively expanded beyond anything that was originally contemplated when enacted.  Thus nearly all criminal defendants today plead guilty to “reduced” charges rather than risk a trial with draconian sentences in the event of a conviction.  This edition has been personally SIGNED by Mr. Silverglate.
