: Does anyone know whatchannels I need to go thru in order to get my son a public defender versed in mental illness, namely, AADD. He is in a jail in Ellijay, Ga awaiting trial in Feb. on drug charges. Anyone that could please help or has any information, please contact me ASAP.
: Thanks so much,

You should contact your county courthouse regarding getting your son a public defender.
You make reference to drug charges and the fact he has ADD. I can understand and sympathize with you regarding your son's situation, however there are two issues here. #1, your son has ADD. #2, he is involved in drugs.
If you are planning on using #1 against #2, good luck. Regardless whether your son has ADD, he is in trouble with drugs and must face the music regarding the courts. It is unfortunate he is ADD, but that will not excuse him from his crimes with drugs.
Good luck to you.
