If you can afford private counsel, contact one ASAP. Go to www.kacdl.net for a criminal defense attorney in your area.
The defendant needs to advise the court, if he has not already done so, that he cannot afford counsel and ask that a public defender be appointed to represent him ASAP.
I am trying to give you a general answer to your question. We do not have an attorney-client relationship by this response on the avvo website. I have not been retained to represent you. I am licensed to practice law in Kentucky and in federal court in this state and the Southern District of Indiana. You need to seek legal advice from an attorney licensed to practice in your area..
