    Due Process
    Junius Williams: Unfinished Agenda
    His life mirrors the movements of the last half century - from segregation and civil rights work in the South to organizing against inequality in the North; from the call to black power to the disappointment of electoral answers. Junius Williams' book "Unfinished Agenda: Urban Politics in the Era of Black Power," traces the American scene of the last half century through his own life story: in the Movement, in the law, in urban politics and in Newark - the city he came to organize ... and never left. As you'll see in this edition of Due Process, it's a story so emblematic that the Smithsonian Institution invited Junius - and his onetime mentor, Tom Hayden - to share a personal and political history of the last 50 years.

    Due Process
    Community Court: A Kinder, Gentler Way?
    Imagine a judge who scolds as if she were your mother; offers help with your problems and applauds your success. She's Victoria Pratt, presiding in Newark's Community Court, sometimes called the "social work court." It's part of what's called "procedural justice, " a new, more creative, more effective way of dealing with low level repeat offenders. Here, there's help with addiction, with housing, with employment - for those who are ready to receive it. A possible way out of crime, without the punishment; a new way of seeing the role of the court - with a whole new kind of judge. Judge for yourself as Due Process goes inside Judge Pratt's courtroom, where human dramas play out every day. In the studio, Judge Pratt and I are joined by Rutgers School of Criminal Justice Prof. Todd Clear, author of "The Punishment Imperative."

    Due Process
    The Eyewitness
    The eyewitness: a staple of criminal prosecution and the base upon which many a conviction rests. But scientific studies on observation and memory - especially in times of stress - have increasingly raised doubts about eyewitness reliability and fears of faulty verdicts. On this edition of Due Process, the dilemma of the pivotal eyewitness, whose testimony may be sincere, but mistaken, or maliciously manufactured or coerced. Sandra King's opening mini-doc recalls 19 years of Due Process coverage of exonerated inmates, most of whom were convicted and imprisoned on the word of eyewitnesses to the crime. Years later - sometimes after decades of an innocent man's incarceration - those eyewitnesses were proven wrong. With the State Supreme Court now requiring tighter rules of interrogation and judicial warnings to jurors, New Jersey continues to lead the country in efforts begun over a decade ago by then-Attorney General John Farmer, who first reformed the rules for investigative techniques like perp photo displays and lineups. In the studio with Raymond Brown and Sandy: onetime prosecutor and former Newark Judge Anthony Guerino, John Jay College of Criminal Justice Prof. Steven Penrod and national capital case attorney Jean Barrett.
