In addition to the dayto-day operations of the agencies, our guest speakers also shared with our students their own career journeys, contemporary issues facing criminal justice agencies, and importantly, demonstrated to our students how their education at HCC may potentially lead to specific careers within these agencies.

2 P A G E 2 A View From the Bench Right to Counsel Criminal Justice Internship Applications & Information yc/cjt/ internships.aspx Criminal Justice Field Studies Applications & Information yc/cjt/forstudents/criminal Criminal Justice Directed Research Applications & Information yc/cjt/forstudents/ By Judge Nick Nazaretian In our last edition, we described the arraignment process that a defendant goes through. Our article today will focus on the appointment of counsel process. This procedure is also conducted at the arraignment. A defendant can hire private counsel to represent them through the trial process. There are lawyers that specialize in the practice of criminal law. These lawyers usually will charge according to the serious nature of the charges. The time a case will take also will have some bearing on the amount charged. Many defendants have to choose whether to bond out of jail or use their funds to hire a private lawyer. The choice most defendants make is to use their funds to bond out of jail. This may result in the defendant having to declare them self indigent. This declaration, once accepted by the court, will entitle the defendant to be eligible to have a public defender to represent them throughout the trial process. The Public Defender Office's main duty in the criminal justice system is to represent indigent individuals charged with crimes in the State of Florida. The Public Defender system can be traced back over 50 years ago to the U.S. Supreme Court case of Gideon v. Wainwright, In that case, Clarence Gideon was arrested for a felony breaking and entering with the intent to commit petit larceny in Panama City, Florida in The trial judge did not appoint Mr. Gideon counsel and after the trial (in which he represented himself), he was found guilty and sentenced to 5 years in prison. Mr. Gideon, while in prison, wrote his own post conviction pleadings and eventually his case was heard by the U.S. Supreme Court. The U.S. Supreme Court ultimately reversed his case and sent it back down to the trial court for re-trial. Mr. Gideon was retried, this time with a lawyer, and he was acquitted. After Gideon was decided, the 1963 Florida Legislature established Florida's present public defender system. Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black was quoted in this case to have proclaimed that "Lawyers in criminal courts are necessities, not luxuries". Today, the majority of criminal defendants facing criminal charges here in Florida have Clarence Gideon to thank for the system in providing them representation for their criminal cases. Prior to my years on the bench and as a prosecutor, I had the honor to serve as an assistant public defender in Pinellas and Pasco counties. I began my legal career as a young public defender. The experiences and education I received as a public defender remain with me today, and, I have no doubt, these experiences have helped me in my previous job as a prosecutor and my current job as a Judge. Regardless of whether you hire a lawyer or one is appointed for you, the right to counsel is a fundamental right that every criminal defendant has in our criminal justice system. While a defendant has the right to defend himself (Pro Se), the defendant must be warned by the trial judge (called a Faretta Inquiry) in essence that anyone who represents themselves in a criminal case, "has a fool for a client". In my next article, we will continue our journey through the criminal justice system discussing the criminal discovery process.
