Does anyone know anything about that process? She received a letter and gave me permission to open it - it had said the judge denied her a free attorney. The judge found her not indigent. She is homeless with no job. I don't know how anyone can say she is not indigent, but I can think of two possible reasons she was denied: 1. she gave this address - maybe the judge figures mom and dad will pay for a lawyer? (NOT going to happen) or 2. since she found a way to bond out, the judge figures she can find a way to obtain a lawyer Anyone know how or why they deny people?
