For the record: as it currently stands, court appointed attorneys are paid $90 per hour with caps as follows:
misdemeanors & preliminary hearings - $112That's not the amounts which the statute states because the General Assembly has not funded it. As of 01 July 2005 it is supposed to go up a couple dollars.
$148 per appeal of misdemeanors to circuit court
$395 for felonies which max out under 20 years
$1094 for felonies which max over 20 years
Judge's Discretion for capital cases
