The Second Saturday Documentary Series presents Gideon’s Army on February 8, at 1:30 p.m. at Niles Discovery Church, 255 H St., Fremont. The screening will be followed by a discussion. Gideon's Army introduces us to three committed public defenders, Travis Williams, Brandy Alexander and June Hardwick, who are attempting to provide high-quality representation despite overwhelming caseloads and virtually no resources. But their stories are the norm, not the exception. They face particularly difficult challenges due to high bonds, minimum mandatory sentencing, and a culture that thinks it is being "tough on crime" by being "tough on criminals." The screening is free, though donations are accepted.
