Hurdle proposes city court change

August 15, 2013

A local attorney is lobbying for the city of Starkville to revamp the way municipal court handles indigent defense.

Jay Hurdle floated an informal written proposal to aldermen and key members of city administration last week suggesting the city create one position to handle indigent defense in municipal court. Not only did Hurdle in his proposal claim the move could save the city as much as $12,000 annually, he also threw his hat in the ring to nab the job if the Board of Aldermen ultimately created it.
