NJSA 2B:24-9 Eligibility for Services of Municipal Public Defender
9. Eligibility for services of the municipal public defender shall be determined by the municipal court on the basis of the need of the defendant, except as provided in section 11 of this act. Need shall be measured according to section 14 of P.L.1967, c.43 (C.2A:158A-14) and guidelines promulgated by the New Jersey Supreme Court.
In the event that a determination of eligibility cannot be made before the time when the first services are to be rendered, or if an initial determination is found to be erroneous, the municipal court shall refer the defendant to the municipal public defender provisionally, and if subsequently it is determined that the defendant is ineligible the municipal court shall inform the defendant, and the defendant shall be obliged to engage his own counsel and to reimburse the municipality for the cost of the services rendered to that time.
2B:24-10 Investigation of financial status of defendant
10. The municipal court shall make an investigation of the financial status of each defendant seeking representation pursuant to this act and shall have the authority to require a defendant to execute and deliver written requests or authorizations required under applicable law to provide the court with access to records of public or private sources, otherwise confidential, as may be of aid in evaluating eligibility. The court is authorized to obtain information from any public record office of the State or of any subdivision or agency thereof on request and without payment of the fees ordinarily required by law.
