Only the criminal division of the Lake County Superior Court participates in the Commission non-capital indigent expense reimbursement program, so Lake County’s reports to the Commission are only for the four courts in the criminal division.
Lake County reports all of its criminal division attorneys as having adequate support staff. The total 46 trial attorneys (in 2015) share ten support staff.
- Staff attorneys: 19 trial attorneys share three secretaries, three paralegals, and two investigators.
- Overflow and conflict attorneys: 27 trial attorneys share one paralegal and one investigator.
Under IPDC policies, it would seem they should be reported as having inadequate support staff.
