This is a great video by The New York Times that shows a day in the life of Arthur Jones, who until recently was an assistant public defender for Miami-Dade County, as he struggles to keep up with an increasingly demanding caseload.

The scary thing is that Mr. Jones’s experience is hardly unique but rather is the norm.
