The program interviews Dr. Anthony (Tony) Vaver, author/publisher of the “Early American Crime” website at www.earlyamericancrime.com. Tony is writing a book on the transportation and use of convict labor in the American Colonies.

The premise of the production is that we understand the current system of crime and justice by understanding the beginnings of the American justice system.

The program is hosted by Leonard Sipes. The producer is Timothy Barnes.
