A court appointed attorney is chosen from a pool of independent local attorneys that are not employed by the District Attorneys Office. These attorneys volunteer as defense attorneys for the same reason that many of us work second jobs, for extra income. The District Attorneys office hires local attorneys to prosecute cases. To be an assistant district attorney you must be an attorney and 99 percent of assistant district attorneys are former defense attorneys. The defendants that this attorney represented should not worry about this new prosecutor devugling any past information regarding previous dealings with them because there are strict rules concerning client attorney confidentiality. This attorney surely would not jeopardize his career by being stupid enough to violate theses rules. Due to a conflict of interest, cases that come through the District Attorneys Office will surely be assigned to other prosecutors if this new attorney once represented them. Plus a persons prior convictions cannot be used against him on the stand unless the defendant testifies during the trial. These convictions would be available to any of the prosecutors.
