18 YEAR OLD TOLD JUDGE HE DIDN'T NEED A COURT APPOINTED ATTORNEY . CAN HE CHANGE HIS MIND? IF HE CAN HOW DOES HE GO ABOUT GETTING ONE
Yes he can still request the appointment of the Department of Public Advocacy to represent him. I would suggest that he first contact the pretrial services officer to fill out an affidavit of indigency. When he next appears before the court, he can request the judge to appoint him a public defender. Good luck.
