In the American judicial system there are 2 types of cases. 

Case 1: Defendent has ample finances available to PROVE innocence.

Case 2: Defendent cannot afford ADEQUATE private councel..

Anyone that ever finds themselves stuck in a situation where you're facing criminal charges and or jail time, you will quickly notice that money is the key to your freedom.

Your first experience will be bail/bond. If you cant AFFORD the bail then you will sit there, being the same "500 dollar risk" as the guy with 500 bucks in his pocket resumes his normal life awaiting a speedy trial.

Your next financial encounter will be with a lawyer, a good one is expensive, this is the realm of "you get what you pay for." Thats another area in wich a financially challenged person doesn't get the same representation or treatment. I could go on for days but there are a couple examples of the injustice in the justice system.
