Paulding Judicial Circuit Superior Courts
Persons accused of a criminal law violation may apply to see if they qualify under state financial guidelines for the appointment of a court-appointed attorney from the Office of the Public Defender. When the District Attorney files charges with the Superior Court a notice is mailed to the accused person (called the defendant) indicating a date and time he or she must appear for an Arraignment Hearing, at which time he or she will plead guilty or not guilty to the charge(s). A defendant who desires the appointment of an attorney at any stage in this process must complete a written application. Further information regarding the application process is available by calling the Office of the Public Defender during the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
