Push continues to fix Michigan’s indigent defense

Another attempt to fix Michigan’s criminal indigent defense system is up and running again.  As you may or may not know, Michigan is one of only 7 states with no state funding for public defense attorneys and ranks 44th in the nation with respect to indigent defense.  With this legislation, more higher standards will be imposed on the local counties to ensure proper funding and training for the indigent defense services.

Please take a moment to review the article and contact your local Michigan representatives to learn more about the proposed legislation.  If you have any questions about the article or any criminal law questions, feel free to contact our office at 517-583-0520.  Thank you and Have a great day.
