Public Defender

How people acquire the help of the Public Defender's Office:

The courts approve appointments to the Public Defender's Office. The court examines both qualifications and financial situation. In some cases the courts, at time of sentencing, have ordered that fees --in addition to fines and costs -- be paid to the General Fund of the County.

A person should contact the Public Defender as soon as possible after the Courts have approved the appointment to that office.
