    Answered . HE should make application for a PD immediately; the method for doing so from inside the jail can be determined by him easily. You don't need to do anything to help him secure the services of the PD.

    Answered . You should speak with a criminal defense attorney about this matter. Get in touch with the PD's office. If you are not satisfied with the attention they are giving the case, call me.
