Indigent Defense Standards

The PDC has been given the authority to create Indigent Defense Standards with which the defending attorneys and counties must comply. These standards are incorporated into IDAPA 61.01.08 through reference and applied to defending attorneys through IDAPA 61.07.07. These standards are available below.

As the PDC moves forward, any additional standards will be created by rule through the negotiated rulemaking process.
