County sued by juvenile defenders

    Pickens County Seal 3d

     Two former indigent juvenile attorneys have filed a civil suit against the Pickens County government, citing a violation of First Amendment rights and a breach of contract.

    Indigent defense cases for juvenile depravation come in response to DFCS complaints. The county is legally required to provide an attorney for these cases if the defendant is unable to provide their own.
