My question involves criminal law for the state of: Kentucky
My Boyfriend went to his initial court date today to have his trial date set. He was denied a court appointed lawyer. He is unemployed, does not receive unemployment or any state assistance, has a dependent, no bank account, or credit cards. Has a mortgage payment, listed all our other bills, a car with no payments (1991) and no worth but was still denied. We own the house together but we are not married. There was no mention of me on the paperwork, I was recently laid off and that is how we still have the house. He was denied today 9/8/12 and his court date is 9/21/12. I read in another post that they probably denied them because the judge saw some asset he could use to pay for a lawyer. Is he expected to sell his house or his car in two weeks time or is there a way to appeal the decision to give them a more accurate picture of our financial situation. There are already two liens on the house. We just need some direction as to what our options are if this denial truly has to stick.
