Episode 7

John Gleeson for the Holloway Project

John Gleeson has done it all. He’s been a federal prosecutor. A federal judge. And now he’s a criminal defense lawyer. Having seen the injustices in the criminal justice system, Gleeson started the Holloway project in which he and a team of lawyers are trying to free defendants who have been crushed by the system and minimum mandatory sentences. In fact, Holloway himself was a defendant that Gleeson sentenced when he was a judge. Gleeson and David Oscar Markus discuss this project, prosecuting John Gotti (who was represented by Albert Krieger), presiding over the Wolf of Wall Street case, and other fascinating stories.
