Legal Question

Asked on: 11/07/13, 12:46 pm

My 20 year old son was arrested for delivery/possession of controlled substance. On his first court appearance the judge refused to assign him a public defender. She asked him did he work (he was working until he was arrested), she asked him who he lived with, he told her he lived with me. She asked my son had he been emancipated to which he replied no, then informed my son I was responsible for obtaining a lawyer for him. How am I obligated to retain a lawyer for a 20 year old adult? Please advise
