Aaron Hawbaker is the chief public defender for Black Hawk County. -promoted by Laura Belin
I am a criminal defense attorney. More specifically, I am a public defender. That further distinction is important for this discussion, because public defenders do not choose their clients based upon ability to pay or the merits of their case. They take all comers, warts and all. I am now in my fifteenth year of public defense and have had the responsibility of defending individuals charged with the spectrum of human baseness.
I am often asked, more frequently the more notorious the case, how can you represent those people?
