The panel included two prominent attorneys and a local reporter who spends a lot of time in courtrooms: Kevin Keating, a defense attorney with three decades of experience; Anthony La Pinta, a criminal defense, civil rights and personal injury attorney for 30 years; and Eileen Lehpamer, News 12 Long Island crime reporter. Cecilia Dowd, a Newsday reporter and PCLI board member, served as moderator.
