Public service announcement

Remember, folks,

Public defender's job is to protect individual rights.

It's a profile of Orangeburg County (SC) public defender Andrew Brown.

"At all times, you're dealing with people who have rights," Brown said. "You're dealing with people, regardless of the circumstances, who need your help. I think we are doing the public a service," he said.

And don't forget,

...of those who are proven to be guilty? Brown said he falls back on the motto, "But for the Grace of God, there go I."
