Defending a Serial Killer: Conversation with Author James Potts

In the late 1970s, several young girls were raped and murdered as a crime wave swept California. Michael Dee Mattson was convicted of the crimes and sentenced to death. In 1982, Jim Potts—an idealistic African American law student—was recruited by one of his professors to assist in writing a death penalty appeal on behalf of Mattson. In “Defending A Serial Killer: The Right to Counsel,” Potts, a local author, and lawyer, revisits the legal, moral, and ethical dilemmas faced when he discovered a loophole in the case that could potentially free the convicted killer to walk again. Pasadena Village’s Cultural Activities Committee invites you to join Potts for a conversation about the right to counsel and how it can be a struggle for those who work with the US judicial system.

This meeting may be recorded. Recorded meetings may be shared on the Pasadena Village website at joining this meeting, you consent to be recorded. If you do not wish to be recorded, you can join the session without your camera on.
