Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
talk to your union and tell them you need another lawyer STAT. if this lawyer is not going to the mat for you, then why are you paying dues? if you did not do this and you feel you have been a target of this civilian then you need legal counsel that is going to have witnesses as to you whereabouts on the dates and times in question showing that you were not on the highway. your union owes you the best defense they have. and they can get someone else, even if that means seeking a continuance for march 9th.
thank you for that information. that is why the attorney wants to got for the disorderly conduct. apparently, the DA is ready to take a plea because there is no proof you pulled a gun or threatened with a gun. this is common when someone is rattled during a "road rage" incident.
you might want to consider the disorderly. just because the guy did not call 911 at the time, does not mean he was not shaken and maybe even in shock.
of course, if you don't want to take the plea, you can go to trial. they would not be able to proof you pulled a gun because your sidearm was not on your person as you stated and you can prove where it was
