Attorney-Client Confidentiality at Federal Detention Centers
In the summer of 2016, the federal criminal-defense bar learned that the Kansas United States Attorney’s Office was in possession of video recordings of attorney-client meetings at CCA-Leavenworth, and audio recordings of attorney-client telephone calls from CCA.
