What should I do if my trial judge refuses to appoint counsel for my appeal?
I have been declared indigent and was appointed an attorney for trial. My financial situation has not changed. The judge used the same financial information that was used for the trial. My court appointed attorney incorrectly quit immediately after filing the "Intent to Pursue Post-conviction Relief" motion. I filed a motion for "Post-conviction Relief Pending Appeal". The judged denied it. I served a 60 day jail term and then filed a "Motion to Appoint an Attorney". The judge denied it. Should I petition the appellate court to get an attorney? I don't know what to do.
