An important requirement that must exist in every legal state is the guarantee of protection of the basic rights of citizenship. Among these basic rights is to get legal assistance services for defendants who cannot afford it for free by an advocate. The law and code of ethics have regulated the provisions relating to the provision of legal aid. The crucial problem lies in the lack of comprehension and comprehensive approach to science through the approach of criminal procedural law in understanding and formulating subsections in several laws so that the image of an advocate is actually seen as a commercial profession and these basic rights are often overlooked. This research is an empirical research using sociological juridical approach. Then, all available data are processed qualitatively and qualitative. This study focuses on the legal assistance conducted by advocates to the incapacitated defendants at the PERADI branch located in Purwokerto. It also explains that a number of factors faced was that they came from their own advocates and from the defendants.
