I gratefully acknowledge the assistance and guidance provided by Ruthann Robson, Professor of Law and University Distinguished Professor. Without her insights, encouragement, and example this piece would not have come to be. I also thank Professor Steve Zeidman, Director of CUNY Law’s Criminal Defense Clinic, for his feedback, ideas, and passion for ensuring zealous defense for all. I am also profoundly grateful for the thoughtful edits and comments—and general love and support—from my fellow CUNY students as we grapple with these issues, especially Wade Rosenthal, Milo Primeaux, Alexandra Smith, Sabina Khan, and the ever-patient editors of this piece, Missy Risser, Cristian Farias, Tatenda Musewe, Ariana Marmora, Chris Michael, and Javeria Hashmi. Finally, my deepest appreciation goes to Tanisha Thompson for her love, light, and laughter.
