A Cuyahoga County judge says the criminal justice system here moves too slowly. Among other impediments, it takes too long for courts to appoint lawyers to indigent defendents and it takes police and prosecutors too long to get around to considering charges. The public defender, he says, is blocking efforts to expand a pilot program that might speed things along. We'll talk to the judge and the public defender as we consider the speed of justice on The Sound of Ideas, Thursday at 9:00 a.m. on 90.3.


Judge Timothy J. McGinty, Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court
Lew Katz, law professor, Case Western Reserve University
