Backed by the Sixth and Fourteen Amendments respectively, indigent defense involves the constitutional mandated free representation of those accused of certain crimes required by both federal and state constitutions. Because defendants are entitled to “effective” assistance of counsel, which varies from state to state, common issues for the courts include: the qualifications of counsel, particularly in capital cases; who pays for indigent defense; who qualifies as indigent; and how the defender system is administered.
