How long will I have a Public Defender?

You will have a Public Defender until the completion of your case or until you are sentenced and for the appeal of any trial or sentencing issues. After you are sentenced and if a probation or parole violation is alleged against you, you must contact our office and you must apply for re-eligibility for services. Please do not delay in contacting our office if this happens to you.
