FOTB: Stretching thin: Public defender helps out with Oil Patch caseload
WILLISTON -- Bob Martin borrows a quote from author J.R.R. Tolkien to describe his job as a public defender covering cases in the Oil Patch:

Martin, supervising attorney for the Minot public defender's office, has been driving to Williston at least two days a week since last spring to temporarily help with the caseload while the Williston office was going through some transitions.
