120-1-17 Reimbursement for experts or transcripts.

The county may seek reimbursement for the costs of experts, interpreters or transcripts requested by the defense and when the expert is answerable only to the defense counsel. The Ohio public defender shall only reimburse the county for experts, interpreters or transcripts when the court will direct the county auditor to pay the experts, interpreters or transcripts directly rather than allowing defense counsel to submit this invoice as part of the assigned counsel fee certification. Reimbursement will not be made if these costs are presented through the attorney's bill for services.
