Am I entitled to a Public Defender for my court case?
Municipal Court is not a Criminal Court of record but is a civil court. The right to a Public Defender only applies to Criminal Courts in the State of Wisconsin. Therefore, a defendant is not entitled to a Public Defender in Municipal Court. You have the right to hire an attorney to represent your interests in Municipal Court at your own expense.
