I have a friend who is stuck in the Phelps county jail. Mo. He has been there for over a month with no court date , No answers to his petitions for a lawyer. He says there are other people in there with the same problem they are being charged 60$ a day. I feel he needs some kind of outside attention to his case at this point
JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And to clarify, can you tell me what paperwork has been filed?
Customer: Missouri. He has sent written request for a lawyer...He was charged with drunk driving
even though he was parked and he was out on the road in his car because someone was coming to his property with a shotgun so he drove out to get a phone signal and call the sheriff and when the sheriff came he was told he didn't care about the guy with a gun and he was taking him in for alchahol.
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: Im not sure. He saw the judge once and was charged with drunk driving and a bail was set he was supposed to have his senticing court date on the 27th but that day came and went with no communication of when the next one would be
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I don't think so
