Jesse Gessin: Federal Public Defender Jesse Gessin is a master of navigating federal prosecutions. He spoke with the Earning Freedom audience today about his experience. Jesse began his career as a federal public defender in the Virgin Islands. After a high level of success, he transitioned to the federal public defender's office in Orange County, California. Those who listen to Earning Freedom know that I'm a huge fan of federal public defenders. They devote their careers to helping people who lack resources navigate their way through federal prosecutions. Jesse spoke with us today about trial, about the sentencing process, about post conviction proceedings, and about preparing for early termination from Supervised Release.
