Episode 190: Day In, Day Out
When Laura Coates decided to become a prosecutor in Washington, D.C., she was told that the job would be “human misery.” She says she remembers thinking, “If there's one person in the justice system who could do something about human misery, surely, it's the powerful prosecutor.” After four years, she quit.
Laura’s book is Just Pursuit: A Black Prosecutor’s Fight For Fairness.
