Unless jail time is being sought, the court is not likely to appoint you a public defender in a hit and tun case. If there was a warrant but you appeared and signed the paperwork, the warrant should be lifted, if it was even issued. A judge needs to issue the warrant, so one may have never been issued if you appears and signed the notice to appear. If you were questioned by the police about the facts of the case while is custody, you should have had to been read your Miranda rights. If not, then any admission you may, could be suppressed and kept out of the trial.
