Sorry for being vague. I need to know if I should file for a continuance today? If not, will I in fact be left to represent myself or stuck with the PD office. motion to supress evidence set for 2-6-12 trial for 2-13-12.
ok. is it necessary for me to waive speedy trial rights if I can obtain an attorney by trial date?
then is it possible for the judge to deny my request to waive speedy tral and force me to either reresent myself or be "stuck with PD office" on 2-6-12. also know the evidence to supress on that date is highly controversial including testimony which wa a violation of Miranda and evidence admission that is the motive for "up-ing" f4-f6. gathering procedure, documentation, as well as burden of proof are strong factors in defense
thank you. also, the court has been involved in discussions regarding my so called attempt to push speedy trial limits, a co-defendants case, as well as several botched attempts to clarify myself & circumstances. is a change of venue a chance? as I know I will not receive a fair trial with appointed judge
wise to inform PD of possible retention of private attry/ post motions?
