my criminal complaint
says violation of 2925.11(C)(3)(g) felony of the fifth degree, but when I looked up the Ohio Revised Code it appears to be a felony of the second degree. Would that be considered a mistake of law or not? Maybe just a clerical error perhaps?
JA: Have charges been filed in this matter? If so, when is the next court date?
Customer: when I was indicted a month later, they changed it to 2925.11(A) trial is in 2 weeks
JA: Because laws vary based on location, what state are you in?
Customer: I live in Colorado, I was pulled over in Madison County Ohio.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: the police edited the dash cam video. Forensics
report said it was not an original. One of the troopers squirted something on the vehicle where the K9 hits a few minutes later. An audio file was recovered with voices that say "I didn't say anything about squirting anything on the car", then a male voice says, "What if it leaks?" I was not following too close. The officer did not read me my Miranda Rights. I asked for an attorney - the officer paid no attention that I told him that. I was interrogated for 2 hours without it recorded and no attorney there. I have had 2 public defenders
that were obviously not on my side. the Trooper mislead the courts to believe my car was picked up off the highway - but in fact the Trooper drove away in the car by himself with the alleged marijuana. The vehicle inventory report is signed off the tow company picked up the car before the time the still photos were taken of suspected evidence. One of the still photos taken shows a bag that looks like nothing is in it, then 2 minutes later a photo is taken with the same bag jammed packed with marijuana the zipper would not be able to close. The dash cam video shows no suspected marijuana. The substance analysis report is in the passengers name and his charges were dismissed without prejudice -not enough evidence, then the prosecutor told the Madison Press his charges were dropped because they will be wrapped up with an ongoing investigation with the DEA. I have no idea if the passenger actually had the marijuana in the car or if the Ohio State Patrol put it there. Still to this day, I have not been shown proof that it ever existed. I have a clean criminal record, clean driving
record and they want to send me to prison for years for something I did not do. My Due Process Rights have been thrown out the window. And so much more........... I can't receive a fair trial. I have made 7 trips to ohio, my house is in foreclosure
, I can't afford to have the gas turned on, therefore my family has no heat. our water just got turned off. My drywall company is struggling to make any money. now it appears I am forced to represent myself for my trial because I just fired my public defender because he refused to properly represent me. he argues and screams at me and calls me names. He wouldn't answer emails with questions. and when I try to explain what happened, he tells me I'm wrong because the State Patrol wouldn't do that or they're allowed to do things like they have done. I'm scared to death, haven't been arrested since I was 18, that's over 30 years ago. Called every pro-bona criminal attorney
in that area in ohio - there are none. I have been told that a good criminal attorney is not going to take a case for free, and wont allow me to make payments for the rest of my life either. ... Any ideas that might help me?? Maybe we should go back to the first question about the violated codes and if they are correct? Thank you for your time.
