Criminal Practice – DWI – Attorneys – Standby Counsel – Fees – Witness’s Arrest (access required)

State v. Bankert The trial court explained to defendant the role standby counsel would play at his trial, and defendant clearly communicated to the trial court that he wanted to represent himself with the assistance of Michael Dye serving as standby counsel. Further, the record reflects that defendant benefitted from Dye’s assistance throughout his trial. There is nothing to indicate that the trial court abused its discretion by appointing standby counsel for defendant and by ordering defendant to pay the corresponding attorney’s fees of $3,502.50.
