Answering Gideon’s Call For Four Decades

“The right of one charged with crime to counsel
may not be deemed fundamental and essential to fair trials in
some countries, but it is in ours. “

Gideon v. Wainwright, 372 U.S. 335 (1963)

See resolution by the Colorado Legislature in tribute to the 50th Anniversary of the Gideon v. Wainwright decision.

The single overriding objective for the Office of the Colorado State Public Defender is to provide zealous and effective representation for indigent individuals who are charged with the commission of a crime in Colorado. The right to counsel is established by both the United States and Colorado Constitutions.
