AceShowbiz - Former "Clueless" star Stacey Dash has been given access to a public defender because she can't afford a private lawyer.
The actress, who is facing a possible domestic violence charge following her arrest in Florida on Sunday (September 29), has filed legal documents, claiming she doesn't have enough money to hire counsel to help her fight the case, according to TMZ sources.
Her request for a temporary public defender has been granted by the judge, but Dash has been asked to prove her finances are too strapped.
She was arrested for misdemeanour domestic violence following an alleged altercation with her lawyer husband.
She claims she was acting in self-defence.
