Description

The Washington County Public Defender’s Office is located in Greenville, MS. With six Felony Level Defenders, three Parent Defenders and eight Youth Defenders, the Washington County Public Defender’s Office provides legal representation to indigent defendants in Washington County who cannot pay for private counsel and are at risk of losing their liberty if convicted. The Sixth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees the rights of criminal defendants, including the right to a public trial without unnecessary delay and the right to a lawyer. Public Defenders have an ethical responsibility to work for the best possible resolution of the case for the client. All dealings between a court-appointed attorney and the client are confidential. Attorneys who provide public defense representation are not only subject to the Mississippi State Bar’s ethical requirements that govern all lawyers, but must also meet qualification standards that have been established for public defense representation.
