In support of a public defender’s office in Harris County

The Criminal Justice Coalition has sent a letter to County Judge Ed Emmett and Harris County Commissioners Court in support of establishing a public defender’s office in Harris County. You can read the letter here. The Court approved a study of such an office last April, and the original plan was to have it up and running by this October. The letter is basically a polite but firm nudge to get a move on. Check it out.
