Any person accused of a violation of his parole, as set forth
in this article, may be represented by counsel at any hearing held
for the purpose of determining whether his parole should be
revoked. In the event the person accused of a violation of his
parole is unable to pay for counsel and desires to have counsel
appointed for him, he shall present his application for the
appointment of counsel and an affidavit reflecting his inability to
pay for such counsel to the circuit court in the county in which
such person is confined or in the county in which the hearing is to
be held for the purpose of determining whether his parole should be
revoked, or to the judge thereof in vacation. If it appears to the
satisfaction of the court or judge that such person is in fact
unable to pay for counsel, such court or judge may appoint counsel
to represent such person. Counsel so appointed shall be paid for
his services and expenses in accordance with the provisions of
article twenty-one, chapter twenty- nine of this code.
