The backlog in criminal court systems around the country is a topic that has been discussed in Justice courses and Criminal Justice circles for decades.
Fortunately, you now have an opportunity to personally address the backlog problem, as you were recently hired to be a Special Assistant to the District Attorney of the City of Philadelphia, Seth Williams.
