My husband was arrested for forgery (2 class D felonies,
My husband was arrested for forgery (2 class D felonies, NYS) on primary election petitions. A state trooper investigator came into his office, did not state that my husband was a suspect in the investigation, and interrogated him. My husband was fearful that his boss would come in and he could not leave the office. After implicating himself by stating that he had signed people's names (some with permission) the officer then read him his rights. Had my husband known that he was being investigated and that he was the suspect he would have called a lawyer first. Were his Miranda rights violated? He was "in custody" in the office because he felt trapped and had to avoid his boss knowing what was going on at the time. Thanks for your advice...JA: What state is this in? And can you tell me a little more about the charge?Customer: New York State. There are two, class D felonies for possession of a forged instrument.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: He has been arraigned and it is in the discovery period. It is reported in all the news outlets in our region.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: He is a 80% disabled veteran who suffered from kidney failure due to exposure to toxic chemicals while in the Coast Guard. He has mental health issues and takes multiple medications for these conditions. The time period that the "forgeries" took place was when he had abruptly stopped his mental health medicine by mistake. His state of mind was not characteristic of his true self.

I was recently arrested and charged with alleged stealing. During processing, I was read my Miranda Rights. Since then, I have tried to get help in getting an attorney. The Public Defender will not help due to the case being in Municipal. The Prosecuting Attorney will not even talk to me because I don't have an attorney.

If so, how would I word it to the Judge?
