If you are truly indigent and can't afford to plop down 2-3K for a private criminal defense attorney, you may be able to get a public defender to represent your son.

A lot of people are deathly afraid of using a public defender, but in some areas of the country, the public defender is the most experienced criminal defense attorney around.

And, even if you're in a major metropolitan area where the PDs have huge caseloads, they generally have good relationships with the prosecutors because they see each other in court on a daily basis.

Some jurisdictions have a list of attorneys willing to take criminal defense cases on a pro-bono (for free) basis. Alot of times the people willing to do this are very good attorneys at top notch firms that actually allow their associates to do some pro-bono work. Check with the local bar association in your area.

Good luck.
