Justice Defiled storms the gates of the criminal justice system to reveal hard truths about the legal community and whom it ultimately serves Justice Defiled confronts the hypocrisy of Canadas criminal justice system, and Alan Young, a criminal lawyer with 18 years of experience and a professor of Law at Osgoode Hall, calls for change and compassion in a system rife with failures and abuses. Justice is not blind; it is a blunt instrument wielded by the powerful and the elite. Young has vast experience challenging the constitutionality of gambling laws, obscenity laws and drug laws, and knows firsthand the hypocritical nature of Canadas criminal justice system. He charges lawyers and judges with greed, rudeness, and apathy, and Canadas constitution with prejudice and archaism. He believes todays criminal justice system reflects the skewed and contradictory beliefs of an unforgiving society. His high profile caseswhich include defending Terry Jean Bedford, the Bondage Bungalow Dominatrix, and challenging for the first time in Canadian history the prohibition of cannabislend weight and intrigue to his text. Armed with a clear and controversial message, an unwavering belief in change and a highly irreverent tone, Justice Defiled looks to shake up a system that has been static in its discrimination and rampant in its abuse for far too long.(September 2003)
