The Criminal Justice Act of 1964 was enacted "to promote the cause of criminal justice by providing for the representation of defendants who are financially unable to obtain an adequate defense in criminal cases in the courts of the United States." The Act requires each United States district court to place in operation for the benefit of certain indigent defendants a plan designed to provide for the appointment, and payment of counsel, and for certain auxiliary services. The purpose of this note is to examine factors that will influence courts in establishing a criteria for applying subsection (e) which provides for services other than counsel.
