This article is classified under racial disparity. Christopher Poulos is a white male who was charged with drug distribution and possession of a firearm. He had a court appointed attorney that was ready to throw him in prison and wanted him to plead guilty, in addition, did not want to fight for his case. He then hired a private attorney with the help of family and was released from jail within a few hours. I think that this is a problem with most minorities in the system–not able to hire private attorneys to fight a good case for them.
