Thank you for the additional information. I apologize for the delay. Detailed responses can take some time to draft. Also I may be delayed because I am assisting another customer, or may have stepped away from the computer for a few minutes.
Your son should take steps to obtain a copy of your 911 call.That recording will contain in real time the events as you observed them and relayed them to the 911 dispatcher. The recording should be available to public under the Freedom Of Information
Act (FOIA). You will have to find out the agency in your area that is responsible for maintaining the recordings and make the request.
Here is a link to a sample letter that recites to the Florida statute. You should modify it to fit your situation.http://www.nfoic.org/florida-sample-foia-request
When you make your request, you should requests all calls, reports and radio transmissions related to incident involving your son. That way you will be able to learn if the female attacker and her accomplices waited until the sheriff deputies arrived in order to make a complaint about your son.
Your version of the events will get a boost in credibility if you are the only one who reported the incident to the police. One would expect a person who had been assaulted with a knife to call 911, rather than only report the crime in response to allegations that they had committed a crime.
If you son is not happy with the public defender that is representing him, he should request in writing to meet with him and discuss how his case is being handled. If he does not feel comfortable he should request in a written motion to the court that a new attorney be appointed. He also has the option (assuming he has funds available) to hire a private attorney of his choosing.
