Consultants warn that the state has been operating a constitutionally inadequate system for quite some time. The study found that public defenders are spending far fewer hours preparing cases which could end up affecting a client’s representation. According to sources, 376 attorneys currently represent more than 98 percent of poor defendants in the state.
