Gov. Rick Snyder makes reappointments to the Michigan Indigent Defense Commission

LANSING, Mich. – Gov. Rick Snyder today announced the reappointments of Frank Eaman of Huntington Woods, Brandy Robinson of Detroit, John Shea of Chelsea, and Michael Swor of Grosse Pointe Woods, to the Michigan Indigent Defense Commission.The commission was created to improve legal representation for low-income criminal defendants. In October 2011, Snyder issued Executive Order 2011-12, establishing the initial Indigent Defense Advisory Commission, responsible for recommending improvements to the state’s legal system. These recommendations served as the basis for legislation to address this need and called for the 15-member Indigent Defense Commission that the governor signed into law in July 2013.

“A key principle of the judicial system is that every citizen has a right to competent legal counsel,” Snyder said. “I am confident these members will continue to serve our state well on this commission.”

Members will serve four-year terms expiring April 1, 2020. Their appointments are not subject to the advice and consent of the Senate. Read Details
