According to the Constitution, Americans are supposed to have the right
to an effective attorney even if they cannot afford one. Public defenders
provide poorer populations the right to defend their case, however many
state public defender systems are terrible– unorganized and underfunded. This
fact is acknowledged by New York, the state has recently created a $12 million
grant pool to help improve some of its counties’
criminal defense systems. However, hope for change is not strong–it currently costs
$380 million a year to run the way it does underfunded. New Orleans, Louisiana
also has one of the worst public defender systems in the country. Brace
yourself, some of these facts may shock you. It is
estimated that New Orleans public defenders worked on 19,000 misdemeanors annually,
per lawyer. This means that each of these cases had an average of about seven minutes
spent on them.
In the 1963 Gideon vs Wainwright case, the Supreme Court ruled that the
government must extend free legal counsel to those who cannot afford it
in criminal cases. However since this case, it seems that some states
have failed to attribute sufficient funds to their public defense system. A
New York Times article explains the reason for this discrepancy. It said, “State
public defenders represent the vast majority of criminal defendants across
the country, but… they remain at a ‘staggering disadvantage’
because of the resources that go to law enforcement and prosecutors’
offices.” Public defenders, though many are good
attorneys, are overwhelmed and overloaded with cases in many states. They cannot
keep up with the amount of people they must serve, and as a result, “indigent
people sit in jail uncharged, sometimes for months, waiting for a lawyer
whose workload far exceeds any reasonable standard.”
