"Because not much political upside to helping criminal defendants exists, many jurisdictions end up with a perennial funding problem...This has real consequences for defendants. Numerous studies that stretch from the 1980s to recent years show that public defenders meet with clients less quickly, file fewer motions, plea-bargain more often, and get charges dismissed less often than private attorneys do."
