The Justice Administration Commission (JAC) is the branch of the government of the State of Florida that helps fund individuals who have been deemed indigent and are unable to pay for certain parts of their criminal defense. This includes Private Investigators, Transcriptions, and other Specialists. Court Appointed Cases (CAC) are cases assigned to private attorneys from an established list due to a conflict. On the other hand, Indigent for Cost (IFC) cases are cases where the client or family member pays a private attorney for their services, but the client is still deemed indigent and qualify for the financial services of JAC for private investigators, specialists, and transcripts.
Prison Break Investigations has eight years of experience working indigent criminal defense cases. We work indigent criminal defense cases at the JAC rate and are license and in good standing with Justice Administration Commission and the Florida Department of Agriculture. We encourage attorneys who are unfamiliar with the Florida Justice Administration Commission (JAC) to visit their website to learn more on how they could help fund your criminal defense case for your indigent clients.
