RAYMOND BROWN in JERSEY CITY BRENNAN COURTHOUSE COURT ART SHOW


Defendant Charles Hicks with defense attorney Raymond Brown 
 More on the Panther drawings from Richard Tomlinson. Now that we were able to identify the drawing of the 3 defendants in the recent post, this piece became another puzzle solved.  With the help of Brian Neary (former Hudson County Bar President, whose inspired thinking was behind this show and Ray Brown Jr calls him the "curator of his father's spirit") we were able to ID the legendary defense attorney Raymond Brown and  defendant Charles Hicks.  The story below shows the approach of Mr Brown to the case, a marked difference from the Panther trials in Chicago and New York, which Richard covered as well. The New York Panther trial is featured in the upcoming book, The Illustrated Courtroom: 50 Years of Court Art. www.illustratedcourtroom.com
