Why would i be assigned a conflict attorney if i have a codefendant
was arrested with my boyfriend he has a record i do not, i have asked to be separated but my conflict attorney says that it is not likely to happen
Multiple defendants in one matter usually have conflicting interests. As a result, the Public Defender's office would be conflicted out of representing both parties. That is why you are being assigned a private conflict attorney. If you have asked to be prosecuted separately, that may be unlikely since you are both co-defendants in the same matter.
