In Utah, public defenders are often chosen by the Prosecutor’s office, and the job is given to the lowest bidder- no matter what their experience level. In fact, the ACLU determined Utah’s Public Defender’s Office to be so stacked against defendants, that it amounted to a violation of the Constitutional Right to Due Process.
…the State of Utah’s county‐by-county public defense system is constitutionally inadequate. It places at risk not just the rights set forth in the Sixth Amendment of the United States Constitution and article I, section twelve of the Utah State Constitution, but also the lives and livelihoods of every single Utah resident who is accused of committing a crime and who cannot afford to retain private counsel. -Failing Gideon, 2010
The cost of private legal counsel is more affordable than the fines and fees associated with a DUI conviction, and if you are convicted of the charges against you, your fines will include the public defender’s legal fees.
