You have the right to an attorney at no expense to yourself if you cannot afford one in criminal and certain other matters, under the Sixth Amendment to the United States Constitution and the Indiana Constitution. However, each county determines eligibility differently. You must contact your local county court to see if you qualify for a public defender. For more information see "Obtaining a Public Defender".
