How can I get a pro bono lawyer for my husband who is currently incarcerated?

Location: Wisconsin  |  Law type: Criminal defense attorney

Hello my name is Jennifer Ann Corder. I am currently seeking any information or better yet a Pro Bono Lawyer that could possibly help my husband Lewis Corder in the current situation that he is in. Lewis is currently incarcerated in Chippewa Falls County Jail due to a probation violation from a charge in 2019. He was arrested in the middle of October of this year based on ONLY accusations that he stabbed someone, which Lewis is innocent of!!! Lewis is in jail on a PO hold and is waiting for sentencing which is on December 15 2021.  He has no new charges nor will he be receiving any new charges. They are going to ask for a year with huber in a county jail. My husband revoked himself because he said he was led (by his PO) to believe everything would go a lot quicker and he’ll get out sooner so he revoked himself with no new charges.  Louis just wants to come home especially now with the holidays And if not for the holidays at least hopefully shortly after so that’s why he ended up taking his POs  advice and revoked himself.  Lewis Louis has definitely gotten in trouble quite a few times in his past but he has been out since 2018 if I Remember correctly and since then I think he’s only gotten in trouble just that one time in Chippewa County in 2019 and has been good since. Prior to all this I was a stay at home mom and grandmother and sinceLouis has been locked up I have had get a job which Is part time but he has always taken care of his family. So basically what I’m trying to say is that I cannot afford a lawyer and a public defender he is eligible for but they cannot find him one before his sentencing date is December 15, 2021 so they wanted to push his court date back but that’s exactly what Lewis doesn’t want to do so now he wants to represent himself and I don’t think that’s a good idea so I am looking to see if I have any luck with a pro bono lawyer. If you could help me in anyway even if it’s information I will gladly anything.

Thank you in advance for your time.

A criminal defense lawyer is a lawyer (mostly barristers) specializing in the defense of individuals and companies charged with criminal activity. Some criminal defense lawyers are privately retained, while others are employed by the various jurisdictions with criminal courts for appointment to represent indigent persons; the latter are generally called public defenders. The terminology is imprecise because each jurisdiction may have different practices with various levels of input from state and federal law or consent decrees. Some jurisdictions use a rotating system of appointments with judges appointing a private practice attorney or firm for each case. Source:
