TINSLEY V. COMMONWEALTH
CRIMINAL _ Appointed counsel, indigency

2005-CA-000361
PUBLISHED   
REVERSING AND REMANDING (MILLER)
DATE: 2/24/2006

Reversed and remanded trial court because the trial court improperly denied appointment of counsel based upon the mere fact that a property bond had been posted to secure Tinsley’s release following his indictment; did not apply
the factors to determine Tinsley’s indigency as provided in KRS 31.120; and, because it is otherwise not determinable from the record whether Tinsley was in fact indigent.
