In the State of California, if one is accused of a crime (any crime) and the case goes before a judge (whether just a hearing or a trial, if there is a difference regarding legal representation), if the accused doesn't have legal counsel, can he request a counselor be assigned to him (in the case he can't afford a lawyer)?
I understand that that is a right of the accused. That is only an opinion.
Of course they can. It's one of your Miranda rights.
