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.

Zoey- I have just one more question on this. The FB account

Zoey- I have just one more question on this. The FB account is deactivated yesterday. It will delete in 14 days unless I reactivate it by signing on FB which will activate it. I won't do that. I have her blocked on skype. While I don't have her blocked on the sex site yet - I did but unblocked - and I will this week - the question I have is : she said she will post nude pictures on FB- now nobody can since its deactivated - I hope - correct? If she had list of my friends on FB would she or he be able to post to their FB-? I'm just worried about this snd the 9 emails I got from her on sex site. Anyway she can do this ? FB did send me email yesterday that it deactivated and will delete in 14 days. I'm just hoping that she or he - I think it's a man that at sometime become a friend on FB. Then this happened. So if they have friend list could they post there- even if I had removed my profile ? Thank you. ***** being over anxious over this ? I'm just fearful. It's been rough. But I pray I did right

If I had a criminal charge against me 19 years ago,

If I had a criminal charge against me 19 years ago, completed Pre-Trial Intervention, had my record expunged, and someone is telling a lot of people about my "crime" now that I am soon to be in a public office, is this slander and would have cause to pursue a lawsuit against him and I am required to admit to this charge since it's been expunged?

Who do you go if soneone is trying to entrap, collude,

Who do you go if soneone is trying to entrap, collude, conspire agsinst one if you fo not knoe the source. I have passed 2 polygraphs that I paid for mysrlf thinking this would clear up the problem. I have been gaslighted, gangs talked. I have never been to an Attorney because I can 't afford to hire one or a private investigator. They have interfered with all thr jobs I really liked. I am not litigious. I just want it to stop. I have been followed. I don't think they are official. My husband investigated organized crime. He passed away in 2002 of lyng cancer. These people? are obsessed eith finding me doibfy something wrong. I had to quit jobs I like and draw social security. I have exhausted all of my efforts in taking the high road thinking they will stop or go away. I would send a cease and desist if I knew who to it to??????
