Crown Ward Defenseless
September 27, 2010 permalink
Here is another kind of abuse of foster kids. A crown ward charged with a crime has to go before the court without legal representation, aside from the lapdog duty counsel or legal aid lawyer.
Hi. Do you have information about CAS's duties/obligation as legal guardian when a Crown Ward becomes involved in criminal court? I have a matter with my daughter. I have some questions & complaints about the lack of support or services provided by CAS. I would have expected CAS to provide my daughter with a lawyer, they are not; refused to pay for defense counsel. She's been taken to legal aid to apply for a certificate lawyer.
