A public defender is an attorney who represents people who cannot afford to hire legal representation. Public defenders also represent juveniles, people facing civil commitment, and others who need legal advocacy but cannot afford an attorney. Public defenders are appointed by the court.
Public defenders keep records on their cases, including trial records, investigation reports, and certain financial documents. Some of these records are available to the public.
