"The right of one charged with crime to counsel may not be deemed fundamental and essential to fair trials in some countries, but it is in​​ ours."

Gideon v. Wainwright, 372 U.S. 335 (1963)

Theresa Huff, Director

Sacramento County Conflict Criminal Defenders Office (CCD) provides legal representation to those charged with criminal conduct who are financially unable to retain counsel. The Sacramento Superior Court appoints Conflict Criminal Defenders when the Public Defender cannot provide representation because of a conflict of interest or insufficient staff.

Conflict Criminal Defenders provide​ representation to our clients by assigning private attorneys. Many of whom have experience as former Assistant Public Defenders or Deputy District Attorneys.

The principal objective of Conflict Criminal Defenders is to provide zealous and effective representation in a cost-effective manner.​
