Commissioners Approve PD Study

Today Harris County Commissioner’s Court approved the creation by the County’s Management Services Department of a study and recommendation on the feasibility of establishing a Public Defender’s Office in Harris County.

If the study reveals that a PD’s Office will provide a cost savings over the current ad hoc appointment system (Grits agrees with me that it will), the PD’s Office is likely to start small, providing trial lawyers to two or three of Harris County’s 22 felony courts (I’ve heard that Susan Brown of the 185th District Court and Marc Carter of the 228th District Court are interested).
