"[T]he true measure of our society will not be judged by the freedom we grant to our great institutions as much as by the protection we provide for society's lowliest member. And none are more lowly-none more subject to potential abuse-and none with more at stake than those who have been indicted and face criminal prosecution in our courts. For them, freedom and fair trial are not abstractions."
