Where I am, at least, criminal defendants are not legal aid's problem. They represent people in some kinds of civil cases. I have had cases where they have represented the opposing party in domestic and breach of contract cases. The Public Defender's office represents criminal defendants who qualify for their services.

Yep, I see. I know a lawyer who works for a Legal Aid Society and handles criminal defense cases (and always wins them it seems), so I assumed they always had a Criminal Defense division but it looks like in other parts of the country they only do civil cases as you say.

same old shit, sixes and sevens Shaft...
