NACDL and Affiliates Letter to Chief Justice Roberts on the Impact of Funding Cuts (August 2013)

I write to you … on behalf of NACDL and the undersigned [leaders] of 26 affiliate associations from 25 states and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. Our members include thousands of attorneys who … believe that access to qualified and properly-resourced counsel is essential to safeguard the rights of the indigent accused. We write to convey our profound concern about the impact of funding cuts on federal indigent defense services, specifically their impact on the thousands of accused persons who depend upon appointed counsel to secure their Sixth Amendment rights.
