Indigent Defense Advisory Commission commended

Gov. Rick Snyder recently thanked members of the Indigent Defense Advisory Commission for completing its mission of offering improvements to ensure cost-effective, consistent and qualified legal counsel is provided to low income criminal defendants across Michigan.

"I appreciate the commission for developing its recommendations to help overcome the decades-long challenges that have impeded Michigan's public defense system," Snyder said. "I will review the recommendations and look forward to working with the Legislature to ensure that all criminal defendants, regardless of ability to pay, receive effective legal representation in our state."

The 14-member commission includes four legislators and 10 members appointed by Snyder
