Hosted by criminal defense lawyer Elizabeth Kelley, CelebrityCourt: AuthorChats features in-depth interviews with writers about their recent works.  In this episode, we talk with Clive Stafford Smith, author of "The Injustice System: A Murder in Miami and a Trial Gone Wrong."  "The Injustice System" traces the trial and post-conviction battles of Kris Maharaj who was convicted of a murder in 1986.   This case has all the hallmarks of a wrongful conviction: prosecutorial misconduct, ineffective assistance of counsel, perjured testimony, and shoddy forensics.  Mr. Stafford Smith is a criminal defense lawyer, the founder of the Louisiana Crisis Assistance Center, and is now the director of Reprieve.   http://www.elizabethkelleylaw.com  @CelebCourt
