San Bernardino County Public Defender Christopher Gardner, Supervising Deputy Public Attorney Yarrow Neubert, and Deputy Public Defender Daniel Messner are quoted in the San Bernardino Sun‘s coverage of client Dennis Mayfield’s case.

“Mr. Mayfield is a person who was treated unjustly at every stage of his case because of the color of his skin,” said Public Defender G. Christopher Gardner. “The illegal jury selection is just the tip of the iceberg. His case illustrates systemic racism at its worst, and what happened to him was tantamount to a legal lynching. The result is an injustice that can never truly be remedied.”
