Wichita County Public Defender Office: An Evaluation of Case Processing, Client Outcomes, and Costs
Group: Texas Indigent Defense Commission
Each of Texas’ 254 counties is responsible for providing legal defense services for indigent defendants facing criminal charges. Traditionally, most cases are assigned to members of the private bar, though more than thirty counties also have a trial-level public defender office. Relatively little information is currently available regarding which of these models yields the greatest benefits in terms of services to defendants, efficiency of case processing, and cost efficiency for the county. This report seeks to answer these questions using data from Wichita County, Texas.
