Unboxing Get Off My Neck
for the first time!

“In this must-read book, Hines tells a courageous account of America’s prosecutorial offices in a captivating and exquisitely detailed manner. This book provides revolutionary insight and should be required reading for every law school student…or for anyone proclaiming an interest in disrupting the injustices in the legal system.”

Susan Burton, Founder, A New Way of Life; author of Becoming Ms. Burton: From Prison to Recovery to Leading the Fight for Incarcerated Women

“Amid many accounts of racial injustice at the entry and exit points of America’s criminal legal system, Get Off My Neck pushes past the perimeter to the very center: overprosecution. Debbie Hines presents a blueprint for effective and meaningful reform.”

Patrice Sulton, Founder and Executive Director, DC Justice Lab

Publisher’s Weekly – “Hines, a former public prosecutor in Baltimore and now a private defense attorney, debuts with a scathing indictment of the criminal justice system…what makes Hines’s account uniquely worthwhile is her detailed and intriguing behind-the-scenes analysis of how prosecutors operate. This passionate firsthand critique will appeal to those interested in criminal justice reform.”

Kirkus Review – “A forceful plea to reform the toxic entanglement of prosecution, policing, and probation in the criminal justice system.”
