My husband has been charged with a simple burglary case in

My husband has been charged with a simple burglary case in LA, he has a public defender that does not communicate at all. What is the chance of getting this case dropped or dismissed? He doesn't have a blemish on his record at all, but this. We appear in court every 2 months where my husband rejects the plea they try to give. He told me he didn't do what they try to pin on him. He told me they told him he tried to steal a vehicle. If he indeed tried to steal a vehicle, I don't think it would be simple burglary, but carjacking. Please advise if he should stick with his public defender or hire an attorney to get this case dropped.JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in?Customer: Shreveport LAJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No we can't get in touch with the public defender lawyer, my husband calls everyday and leave messages and no return calls. We live in Texas and have to travel there for court appearances which seems to just be a waste of timeJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: That's it

In Texas. Me and my ex are going through a custody battle.

Hello I am Dave in Texas. Me and my ex are going through a custody battle. For now we have to switch our child at the police station. Last week we met at 4 an talked out side the police station for about 2 hours. It went good then I asked her if she wanted to hugme and she told me no. So I said okay and i walked 3 spaces over an I got in my truck. I looked at my Phone sat it down on the console and grabbed the drive shaft and my ex opens my passenger door reaches over an grabs my phone and starts saying were you recording us and she goes to my videos and pics an deleted a few things and I don't touch her cuz I don't want any charges at all on me! So tell her she's crazy and to get out and she starts to be nice to me and says let's meet tonight after she feeds her kids etc.well I get home and I notice 200 dollars that was on my seat is gone. I can't honestly say if she did do it or if it fell out.Anyway I called the police and I told her too. She went back to the police station and she admitted opening my door and getting my phone but says she didn't get the money.So the officer I talk to over the phone he tells me I can't do much cuz we were talking but we knew their was boundaries.Then he says well file the report online so I do then it is rejected so the next day I go to the police station show them the email that it said it was rejected due to me naming a suspect.So he tells me yes you can do something. Since you guys don't live together, aren't married, and the truck isn't in her name. So he turns it in as burglary to a vehicle.My question is I have read a lot of different stories. Some people say because I was in the vehicle they will say it is okay... some say I can't prove she took any money and that is true. She did admit to getting my phone to the officer. To me my data is intangible property and by deleting it she stole it from me.Anyway I just want to know if you have any ideas on a response or a counter if the detectives decide to turn this down for some reason.... plus! Shouldn't it be tampering with evidence since we are in an on going custody battle? We just had court and we are awaiting mediation at the moment..
