Court Appointed Attorney
Apply for Court Appointed Attorney
If the Prosecuting Attorney is requesting you be sentenced to serve jail time for the violation with which you are charged, the Judge may appoint you an attorney.  If jail will be part of your punishment and you cannot afford an attorney, the Judge will appoint an attorney to represent you. You do not have a constitutional right to have an attorney appointed if a jail sentence will not be part of your sentence.

Do not confuse this with a Public Defender or the Public Defender's office.  The Public Defender's Office does not provide representation to individuals in Municipal Court cases.
