The Okemos law firm of Chartier & Nyamfukudza, P.L.C. has launched “Constitutional Defenders,” a criminal defense podcast discussing high profile cases, changes in the law, and other hot topics in the legal world. It also gives listeners a behind-the-scenes look at how attorneys defend challenging cases.

Some of the topics include the “Gardening While Black” case from Detroit, which has been profiled in the New York Times, with attorney Robert Burton-Harris; “Breaking Bud: Navigating Laws Surrounding CannaBusiness and Recreational Use,” with attorney Bob Hendricks; and “The Exoneration of an Innocent Man,” a discussion about the exoneration of Dennis Tomasik with his wife Kim Tomasik. Dennis Tomasik spent nearly nine years in prison before winning an acquittal in a sexual assault case.

The podcast can be found on iTunes, Spotify, and more, as well as the C&N website at www.cndefenders.com. New episodes are available every two weeks.
