Does OIDS ever represent defendants in cases filed in Oklahoma and Tulsa Counties?
If the case is at the trial level, OIDS is neither appointed to or assigned the case. The district court may appoint OIDS to represent the defendant on appeal if an appellate conflict of interest exists between the defendant and the county indigent defender. If the case is on appeal, OIDS may also be appointed in Oklahoma or Tulsa County to any criminal case if the defendant had a private attorney at trial. In death penalty cases, OIDS represents all defendants in Oklahoma in post-conviction proceedings, regardless of the county in which the case was filed.
