If you don't have job and no income why and how is it ok for a judge to deny you the right to a public defender?

We need a lot more information.
Where are you located? (State)
What are the charges? misdemeanor or felony?
What did the Judge say when he denied you a public defender?

The right to appointed counsel does not exist if incarceration is not a possibility and an potential fine is relatively minor.
