To day I go back to court .i have been given a public defender ,and yet I still have not to say spoken with her. But she has sent me the supplement copies of the offer Eros reports. Is this how it works ? I do not get to sleek with the public defender that is to be helping me

I have no money in back at time ,I've givin my last 45 . To this sight ' but please help
Expert:  CrimDefense replied 4 days ago.

Thank you for the reply. Yes, today in court, you will speak with your public defender. The PD has a heavy case load and normally does not speak with their clients until the day of court, since they have so many cases to work and do not have the time to speak with everyone all the time, when they are trying to balance their workload. I know it is not ideal but the truth of the matter. They sent you the discovery to review and when you appear, you can ask any questions which you may have, to help decide if you want to fight this and go to trial or take a plea deal.

I know what went on the day I was being accused,so this is why I was sent the copies to read and ask them questions.that are facts that the cashier while I was standing waiting to pay four my shirt she had picked up something saying oh this looks like one of our volunteers

Why would she say that the managers was acting strang
Expert:  CrimDefense replied 4 days ago.

You should speak with the PD today and ask about taking depositions. This way, you can speak with the manager, volunteers, cashier or anyone else who was involved and has relevant information, to see what happened and get their version, so you can fight this and see what they would testify to

Expert:  CrimDefense replied 4 days ago.

No, I am a real person.

Expert:  CrimDefense replied 4 days ago.

You said you do not want to be a PD and a PD, as I shared above, standing for public defender.

Customer: replied 4 days ago.
I yes thought pd public defender meant they would be asking the question,and i ,but now am I understanding right that I do all and they present it
Expert:  CrimDefense replied 3 days ago.

No, the public defender acts on your behalf and represents your legal interest. You speak with them and have the final say as the client but they do the work on your behalf

Customer: replied 3 days ago.
I don't understand what work are they doing if they have not Spock with me and I am to ask is they or my self can talk to the others and did they read the copies and yet not hear from me till the mins befor seeing judge
Expert:  CrimDefense replied 3 days ago.

They will speak with you today and ask how you want to proceed. If you tell them you want to fight this, they will prepare for trial. If you want to resolve it, they will speak with the prosecutor and work on a plea deal. You can also speak with them and schedule a time to sit down and go over everything, if you have questions and want to know how they plan on defending the charge
