Charges : receiving stolen property with a prior
If you cannot afford an attorney, the court will appoint one for you free of charge. Most attorneys won’t do this type of case pro bono.
If you can't afford to hire your own lawyer, the judge will appoint one from the Public Defender's Office when you go to court.
Most lawyers can't afford to work for free. Maybe they will change when our secretaries work pro bono, we get pro bono phone service, and the State Bar starts does away with the dues we pay.
This is NOT legal advice. It is a general discussion of legal principles by a California lawyer, and does not create an attorney/client relationship.
