Son was arrested in nyc for criminal mischief (accidentally hit door and it broke at bar). The public defender stated he would get acd and didn't need to hire a private attorney as long as he was willing to accept that. This happened about 6 weeks ago and his court date is in 2 weeks. Will the PD be there? He has emailed him and hasn't heard back. We (parents) were there and PD told us the same thing. Son has NEVER been in any trouble before.
Yes. We were also there and met him.
