Due to the correspondence received September 26 (see below), from Boone County Public Defender David Wallis, the Boone County Court will begin, effective today at the 1:30 p.m. dockets, to appoint members of the private bar to represent criminal defendants. Presiding Judge Kevin Crane realizes the imposition this will have on you, but has no choice but to take this action. The time that this private appointment period will last is unknown.
Presiding Judge Crane appreciates those who have already come forward and volunteered to accept appointments to criminal cases. He encourages others to do the same. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Susan Tatters at 886-4067.
