Public Defender

Welcome From the Henry County Public Defender

Welcome to the Henry County Public Defender's web page. This page is to acquaint the public with the functions of this office. 

The main responsibility of the Henry County Public Defender is to represent those persons who have been accused of a crime which carries with it the potential for jail or prison time and who cannot afford to retain a private attorney.  Only a Judge can appoint the public defender to your case.

The Public Defender can likewise be appointed in Juvenile Matters involving abuse or neglect and delinquent minors. The Public Defender could be appointed Guardian Ad Litem of the minor (someone who takes only the best interests of the minor into consideration), or be appointed to represent one or both of the child's parents.
