My mother-in-law was arrested and charged with 'contempt of court' in San Diego . The problem is my wife and I live in Chicago and are only just finding out about the situation. Is there any way we can get an attorney in San Diego to help out, and look into this case? Her bail is set at $30,000 and we really can not afford it. Please i really want to help but i don't know how.
The Public Defender's Office will represent her for free--but they're not working for free, the government pays their salaries.
