What are my options after the following happening to me....

What are my options after the following happening to me....My lawyer quits on me the night before Sentencing(I have the text he sent proving it). He then shows up in court the next morning trying to speak to me but I ignore him. He goes into the judges chambers with the ADA and he comes out saying if I let him continue as my lawyer the judge will give me 11.5-23 months house arrest, and I'll be let off after 6 months for good behavior. I only agreed to let him continue and take house arrest because I was afraid the judge would take it out on me for not having a lawyer that day. The judge hands down the sentence with " no chance at early termination." I have concrete proof that will not go away that he said I was done after 6 months. What are the consequences for a lawyer making such false promises? I'd like to add that this particular Sentencing date was a month and a half after my previous one. We were giving a continuance so he could file a motion he missed the deadline for. I have proof he quit on me a week before that Sentencing as well. So I spent another month and a half on pretrial house arrest that I wasn't be given credit for.

I'm having a bit of an issue with my case. I've been trying

Good evening,I'm having a bit of an issue with my case.I've been trying to balance what to do on my own with my case and what to have lawyers work on so recently I've been doing some filings myself.I have an appeal bond, and I filed a pro se writ of cert to SCOTUS.I hired a lawyer to file my Petition for Post Conviction Relief.I filed a motion for a new trial which was denied, but in response to that motion the Prosecutor also filed a motion to revoke my appeal bond.Her motion is ridiculous because there's no basis to revoke my bond, as my case is still on appeal, she just think that she will stop having to work on my case if I get taken into custody.In Maryland a Judge has to put in writing the reason for revoking a bond, and given there's no valid one. But I'm aware she could do it anyways so I'm wondering what my options would be in the scenario that she does in the next 1-3 days.Would I have to just file a motion to quash the bench warrant, or set date to turn myself in with another judge or motion to reinstate the bond. Wouldn't it be sanctionable conduct if she revokes my bond without a valid reason?PDFs of the motion to revoke bond and my response in opposition are attached.
