      I have a criminal case from 2012, my health is not good and financially I’m poverty level. I keep getting referred to legal aid for assistance even though it’s not a service available. Everything has been done except the sentencing for this case, however, due to the gap in time, I really need to consult with an attorney before going any further. Even a consultation to discuss my options or point me to someone that could help, would be very much appreciated. Thank you

        Hi Sandy,
        If it involves tribal court – you can apply for our services. If it is a state court matter – if you have the potential to be sentenced to jail – you can still ask for court appointed counsel if you are indigent. There is a form the county court or district court you could request and fill out to request court appointed counsel. We cannot represent people in criminal matters other than in tribal court. There is no referral source for criminal help – other than if the person has a right to court appointed counsel – either the Public Defenders office or an attorney accepting court appointments would be appointed by the court.

        If the person is indigent and is not sentenced to jail – but is sentenced to probation and a fine – the court should take into consideration the financial circumstances of the person ordered to pay. The ACLU has good information about what the Defendant’s rights are when they are ordered to pay fines and fees. https://www.aclunebraska.org/en/know-your-rights/court-fines-and-fees
