Summary The Miami Herald conducted a two-year examination of the criminal courts and found a badly flawed system. Thousands of criminal defendants with money get a free public defense in Dade County. They won expensive luxury cars, fancy houses, and private businesses. Every year, nearly 1,500 felony cases are dropped because police officers fail to meet with prosecutors. (Dec. 17, 18 & 19, 1995)
