C. Court Appointed Attorneys.
-
-
In Gideon v. Wainwright, (1963), the Supreme Court unanimously decided that states had to provide free legal counsel to indigent criminal defendants. The Court held that poor people were being deprived of their Sixth Amendment constitutional right to an attorney, which applied to the states under the Fourteenth Amendment Due Process Clause. The condition of poverty placed defendants in a position of not receiving the same opportunity for a fair trial (due process) as people who could afford to hire an attorney, which was unconstitutional.

The verdict in Gideon's first trial was overturned, and the case remanded to the Florida state courts for a new trial, this time with court-appointed counsel.

Gideon was acquitted in the second trial.
