Your Rights

YOUR RIGHTS AS A DEFENDANT

You have the right to an attorney. You have the right to ask this court for a reasonable continuance in order to secure the services of an attorney. If you are indigent and cannot afford an attorney, you have the right to have an attorney provided to you at not cost. If you feel that you qualify and want to have an attorney provided, make your request known when you come forward. An attorney will be provided only for those charges that could result in a jail sentence if you are found guilty.
