County supervisors tell lawmakers more money needed for defenders

Supervisors from Door and Kewaunee Counties are telling lawmakers face-to-face more money is needed to get private attorneys to act as public defenders.  During a recent gathering at the state capitol, county supervisors brought the needs facing local governments directly to legislators.  Door County Supervisor Megan Lundahl says Wisconsin counties almost unanimously agree that the current compensation is inadequate for public defenders.

 

 

In some larger counties, some defendants have had to wait to make court appearances because of the delay in finding someone to act as a public defender.
