Submitted For: Lourdes Todd
Department: Public Defender  

Action Requested
Public Defender - Approve dependency, delinquency and conflict appellate contracts for Attorney Robert Casey and allow the Public Defender's Juvenile Chief, as Juvenile Contract Administrator, to sign all necessary documents.
Brief Explanation of Need
Due to overflow and conflicts of interest, the Juvenile Division of the Yavapai County Public Defender's Office is unable to handle all juvenile cases in Yavapai County. As of this month, we are losing three contract attorneys (one to the judiciary; two will pursue other opportunities) so will be in need of additional contractors as of January 2019.  Mr. Casey has solid juvenile experience and excellent references. 
Lourdes Todd, Chief of the Juvenile Division
