Ryan Kalamaya Interviewed by Aspen Daily News

Ryan Kalamaya spoke to the Aspen Daily News about people who fall between the cracks in the criminal justice system. In Colorado, a person qualifies for a free attorney, provided by the Office of the State Public Defender, only if that person falls below a certain income level.

Unfortunately, many of those people have to represent themselves in the criminal justice system, even on serious felony charges.
