Harvey Silverglate discusses problems of modern criminal law.

America’s criminal codes are now so voluminous that they bewilder not only the average citizen but also the average lawyer. Harvey Silverglate, in his new book, Three Felonies a Day, argues that the typical American professional is likely unaware that he or she violates federal law daily. He spoke at the Cato Institute October 1, 2009.
