Kristin Rice, Adams County’s Chief Public Defender for the past 11 years, will retire on Dec. 31 to return to her private law practice.
Rice has been working at Adams County since 2003. Her office includes three assistants who together handle about 1,000 new cases every year.
The team provides legal representation to people, including juveniles, who are facing potential jail time, who are incarcerated, or who are being involuntarily committed due to mental health issues.
In this podcast I talk with Rice about how she got into law and criminal justice, the types of cases she normally handles, the joys she has experienced when she made a difference in someone’s life, and the important role that mental health services play in the process.
