What if I do not have an attorney but have questions about a criminal matter?

A Public Defender is made available on a weekly basis for 'Attorney Of The Week' duty. That attorney serves a community service function by answering general questions from the public. An Assistant Public Defender assigned as 'Attorney Of The Week' may also handle emergencies that would require the presence of an attorney.
