Court Appointed Attorneys
The Court does not appoint attorneys for minor misdemeanor citations. If you do not have the funds to hire an attorney, you may
apply for a court appointed attorney by filling out an application which you can pick up from the clerk's office.
After the notarized application is submitted to the clerk's office, accompanied by proper proof of income and mandatory $25 fee,
it is then given to the Judge for his approval. The $25.00 fee must be paid within 7 days after arraignment. The Public Defender can be left
a voice mail at (234) 220-6976.
