CANTON — St. Lawrence County Legislator Frederick S. Morrill, D-DeKalb Junction, asked County Administrator Karen M. St. Hilaire on Monday to have the New York State Association of Counties provide the costs that other counties across the state pay for prosecution and indigent defense.

Mr. Morrill is supporting the request of District Attorney Mary E. Rain for pay raises for assistant district attorneys.

Legislator Joseph R. Lightfoot, R-Ogdensburg, reported that the county Indigent Defenders, a union of lawyers from the public defender’s office and the conflict defender’s office, are waiting to negotiate a contract with the county pending the settlement of the assistant district attorney salary increases.
