Will I be appointed a attorney when charged with embezzlement?

Are there certain types of crimes in which you need to provide your own attorney, or is there always one appointed to you by the court? I'm facing embezzlement charges and I am not sure if I can afford a lawyer.

    If you can't afford a lawyer, the court will appoint one. Maybe you'll get a good one who will listen to what you have to say, maybe you'll get a so-so attorney who'll barely have time to tell you what time it is, but you'll get a lawyer. You may have to pay the county back later, though. Or...you might be able to afford one after all. Budget a few thousand at least.

    You need to fill our a financial form to see if you qualify financially. If so you are entitled in California to an appointed attorney for any crime for such you face possible incarceration.

    Whether or not a court will appoint a public defender for your will depend on your financial situation and whether you qualify financially for a court appointed attorney. It doesn't matter what the charges are. Your financial situation is what will or will not qualify you.

    Any criminal case if you cannot afford a private attorney one will be appointed, probably a public defener.

    Will I be appointed a attorney? If you ask, and if you qualify financially, the court would appoint one. If you don't qualify, then you are facing attorney fees that you would have to discuss and negotiate an agreement.
