Cultural Issues in Criminal Defense (3rd Edition)
Linda Friedman Ramirez, Editor
Juris Publishing (2010)
Reviewed by Mark P. Rankin
In recent years, many more of our clients are citizens of other
countries or, although American citizens, part of a foreign culture
within our borders. Illegal immigration has been at the forefront of
political and legal movements, resulting in more prosecutions of
Mexicans and others for illegal entry offenses. And in the past decade
the government has expanded its “War on Drugs” to include the frequent
arrest of Central and South Americans who are captured in the Eastern
Pacific Ocean. As a result, it is more important than ever for defense
counsel to have the expertise and tools necessary to represent clients
who speak another language, are citizens of another nation, or otherwise
present cultural issues within the framework of their criminal cases.
