Why Don’t Kids Have Lawyers?

The Colorado Juvenile Defender Coalition has produced an amazing, short video Why Don’t Kids Have Lawyers? that is useful to those Indiana advocates who are continuing to try to get EVERY child in Indiana to have an attorney at their first appearance in juvenile court.  The issues raised in the video are not unique to Colorado, but are ongoing in Indiana, and will continue after the new appointment of counsel rule is implemented on January 1, 2015.

For more information about the early appointment of counsel issues, see the page tab at the top of this blog and the following prior posts:
