My attorney filed a motion to dismiss a criminal complaint

My attorney filed a motion to dismiss a criminal complaint against me for being facially insufficient. Even a layman without a law degree would agree - it was poorly drafted and barely touched on elements to make a prima facie case. In NYC a one count B misdemeanor doesn't get a trial jury - it is bench (I am sure you know this, but I was horrified to learn) --the prosecutor responded to this motion NOT by redrafting complaint, but rather denying it and including for reason of denial email correspondence and other exhibits which made apparent my previous arrest in a case I received COMPLETE DISMISSAL for bc the prosecutor made egregious errors. It is my personal opinion this is a revenge thing, but that's just my opinion. As such, the judge denied the motion bc the prosecutor only submitted exhibits convenient for them, while my attorney was attempting to be ethical and stick to the four corners of the complaint.My question is this: are a defendant's rights violated if, in a response for a motion to dismiss for lack of making a prima facie case, the prosecutor's response to judge, who is the fact decider in bench trial, was a series of exhibits of a previous case that had been dismissed in my favor and sealed? I feel like this was extremely unfair.

I have a son who took a ten year plea, for his wife's

I have a son who took a ten year plea, for his wife's activity of CP downloading. He loved his wife with total commitment. She was present at all legal proceedings, so without pause, he took the fall for her. After his incarceration, she admitted to a third party, of what she had done. His wife has now divorced him, which shattered him. We are now trying to overturn his plea. He is innocent of this offense. Even if he had changed his mind during legal proceedings, she was in the room so he stuck with his false claim of guilty. How do I even approach getting him out of prison.JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TennesseeJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: we just after three years heard of his wife's admission to the deed.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I am doing this on my phone with it's limitations. This is a federal case.

My question what is proceudre and protocol when a County

My question what is proceudre and protocol when a County Sheriff official falsifies an official report and hands to a DOJ Special Agent--and DOJ now recognizes they were handed a falsified report by a County Sheriff official--what steps does DOJ take in such a matter?Story---DOJ/DCI Special agent called Sheriff's Department and requested a case be re-opened--Sheriff Department did not investigate--even though official witnesseed evidence crimes have occurred--due to politics and power, hid the crimes--(they are corporate crimes). -- never put evidence witnessed in any official reports and as stated handed to DOJ--DOJ now knows the full story--corruption. The DOJ agent is now a commander in chief of a DOJ Division--he was first to be told--given the evidence such acts took place. So what steps does DOJ take when there is such misconduct occurrs?Thank You
