Public Defenders

In the U.S. justice system "if you cannot afford a lawyer one will be appointed to you." Who are these appointed lawyers? Are they all working in the Public Defender's office or is it conracted out? Would this type of lawyer ever prosecute a case? In this case the PD knows the case extremely well and even defended the previous accused. Would it be feasible for him to be used/hired by the District Attorney?

Any suggestions on how I could make this work?
