What “chews up and spits out” experienced criminal practitioners is not the habeaswork itself, or the fact that we’re dealing with life and death ["Habeas Hunt," Dec. 15]. We’re used to that. It’s the pitifully low pay and the $25,000 cap on investigation and experts. The Legislature has got to understand that if it wants to execute people, it’s going to have to pay to have them properly defended first.
