I am sorry you are facing such very unfortunate predicament…. especially considering the fact that probably you do not have funds to obtain a private counsel. Still, I suggest contacting Central Legal. They are specializing in criminal defense representation of low income clients. Also, you have to contact the State Public Defender. I you are qualified they will appoint counsel for you. If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me via avvo.com. Good luck.
Have you been charged with a crime? If you have been charged with a crime, you will have received notice that you are required to come to court at a specific date and time.
I am surprised that you would be facing "fraud" charges for sending your child to school in the district where you were living when you becoame homeless. The McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act (No Child Left Behind) was implemented to prevent confusion about where homeless children could attend public school. See this website: http://dpi.wi.gov/homeless/
The designated Homeless Liaison Contact for Fond du Lac is John Whitsett and his telephone number is 920-906-6505. I would suggest calling him and describing your situation. He should be able to give you some direction.
If you have been charged with a crime, call the Office of the State Public Defender at 920-929-3990.
