Brittany Chiechi, Ivona Ogramic, Colleen Rowe and Sara Rankin (Seattle University, School of Law, Students, Seattle University, School of Law, Students, Seattle University, School of Law, Students and Seattle University School of Law) have posted What to Expect When You Are Arrested: A Guide to Navigating for Unhoused Defendants (Sara Rankin Ed., 2018) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:
Public defenders often are overworked and have little time to spend with clients; many defendants do not even receive one. But even represented unhoused defendants can help themselves with HRAP’s first-of-its-kind guide to navigating court, which introduces common legal terms and timelines, and provides strategies for those experiencing homelessness to advocate for themselves.
