Camel caller

This morning a caller rang asking a good question about today’s story on Percy Camel. The caller said that he and his mother were talking. He asked:  Now that the Public Defender’s Office isn’t representing Camel and the court appointed private Stockton attorney Lance Jacot, who is paying?

The answer is that tax payers will continue to pick up his legal representation.

There’s another point worth mentioning. While Camel for some reason rejected two highly qualified attorneys, Jacot is no slouch. The story may have implied that he gave up good attorneys for a bad one. That’s not the case at all. Jacot about one year ago left the Public Defender’s Office, where he was among the rising stars. He launched his private practice.
