54-year-old Mickey Mosher did not have a lawyer for today's hearing and her husband said that the lawyers he had spoken to so far had quoted him anywhere from $150,000 to $500,000 dollars.
"They had been quoted prices from a defense council that they could not afford and unfortunately affordability is not a state guideline to qualify for a public defender", says Logan County Assistant County Attorney, Gail Guiling.
Mosher was denied a public defender since she owns her own trucking business and is self-employed, and owns her own home which doesn't meet the state guidelines for a public defender.
She is being given two weeks to find someone to represent her and the next hearing for her case will be a preliminary trial on June 22nd at 1:00.
Mosher is being charged with 1st Degree Assault, two counts 2nd degree manslaughter, D.U.I., possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphanelia.
A bond reduction was denied since Mosher has another drug charge on her record from last year.
Mosher's bond still remains at $250,000.
If the judge finds there is probable cause to believe Mosher committed a felony offense, Mosher will be referred to a grand jury.
