(SEYMOUR) - A man who knows his way around the courthouses in Jackson and Jennings counties has been selected to lead efforts to improve the county's system of helping those who need legal help for criminal cases.

The Tribune reports that Alan L. Marshall was named to the newly created position of chief public defender by Jackson County's three-member public defender board during a brief meeting on Friday in Seymour.

The public defender's office will replace a system in which local attorneys with private practices provided legal representation for those unable to afford an attorney. Those attorneys worked on a contract basis.
