Raleigh Criminal Lawyer Comments on Rumored Funding for Public Defense

Raleigh, North Carolina (September 16, 2013) – Kurtz & Blum, PLLC, a trusted firm offering Raleigh criminal lawyer services, supports the rumored authorization of $2 million in additional funding for North Carolina’s public defense system. Rumors of the increase surfaced following the budget talks recently held by state legislators.

The additional funds are supposed to be used for hiring additional public defenders across the state, in order to meet the demand for indigent defense services that has increased since the economic slowdown of 2008. According to the firm, this move by the legislators could mean that North Carolina is finally enacting measures that will make their criminal justice system fulfill the requirements of the 6th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. They also compared the development to that being pursued in Idaho, where lawmakers are scrambling to adequately satisfy obligations for defendants.
