OSPD has three main divisions: Capital Defense Counsel Division, which tries and assists in death penalty trials and appeals throughout the State; the Indigent Appeals Division, which handles all felony indigent criminal appeals; and the Training Division, which is responsible for the training all of Mississippi's public defenders.
