More from the Roanoke paper on counsel fees for indigent defendants

The Roanoke paper has this editorial once again supporting more money for the lawyers who supply the constitutional right to counsel for indigent criminal defendants.

It says in part:

"The General Assembly either will agree this term to pay a fair wage to lawyers who represent indigent defendants, or Virginia will be forced to defend in federal court allegations that it stands in contempt of the U.S. Constitution."
