So are you asking if the state will appoint a laweyr for you? Were you deployed at the time?

So you may want to contact the embassy in Turkey and advise them of the situation. IF a US citizen is arrested overseas by a foreign government, they can generally advise on the Legal process there and assist you with finding a local attorney. If you are facing a military prosecution from the US military, then you should speak with JAG. Generally, a lawyer is appointed for you at the military's expense in that situation.
