The Town of Quartzsite has failed to pay for the services of a certain public defender. The town provides a public defender, at the town’s expense, to criminal defendants who qualify.
Michael Frame, attorney and one of the public defenders used by the town, is still receiving cases regularly from Quartzsite Magistrate Court. He indicates that his bills for services for December and January to date are unpaid, and that the Town has refused to pay him. He has filed a motion this morning in court containing this claim. Other serious allegations are made in the motion as to Quartzsite Town Attorney Martin Brannan.
