Thank you for your update.
At this point, since you cannot afford a private attorney, it seems this attorney is making every mistake in the book or he at the least is not representing her best interests and you have grounds to file a complaint with the IA Bar Office of Disciplinary Counsel for malpractice and provide them the information that he is not zealously representing her and is making deals with the DA behind her back. Once she makes this complaint the attorney must withdraw from the case and the court must then appoint a new attorney to represent her, who is hopefully better than this clown you have now.
I am afraid that is really the only way you can get rid of this guy and the only way to help her get someone to fight for her rights.
