with juvenile delinquency or in need of supervision, or with a violation of probation, and appears without counsel, the Court shall advise the person that he or she has the right to be represented by counsel and that counsel will be appointed if desired and if he or she is financially unable to obtain counsel. In connection with any appointment of counsel made pursuant to the Criminal Justice Act, it shall be the duty of the Criminal Justice Act Office of the Public Defender Service, under the supervision of the Court, to determine whether a person is financially unable to obtain adequate representation. This obligation shall extend to both cases prosecuted by the United States and cases prosecuted by the District of Columbia. All statements made by a person in such an inquiry shall be made by affidavit, in such form as the Public Defender Service may prescribe, sworn to before a judicial officer, court clerk, deputy clerk, or notary public, and shall be retained in the case file. At any time while such person is represented by an attorney appointed pursuant to the Criminal Justice Act, the judicial officer presiding over such person's case may compare such affidavit with other statements made by such person when seeking pre-trial release or in the pre-sentence investigation process concerning his or her employment status or financial means and may take such action, if any, as may be appropriate under the circumstances and consistent with applicable law. If at any time after the appointment of counsel the Court finds that a person is financially able to obtain counsel or to make partial payment for representation, the Court may terminate the Criminal Justice Act appointment of counsel, order that any funds available to the person be paid as provided in D.C. Code § 11-2606 (2001), or take other appropriate action. Any funds required to be paid by the person pursuant to D.C. Code § 11-2606 shall be ordered payable to the Court.
