If someone was incarcerated in one county of Maryland and

If someone was incarcerated in one county of Maryland and made a plea agreement with part of the plea being that he would be able to be transferred (immediately upon plea) to another county to have a warrant executed and case tried in the other county before the sentencing in the first county, but can't get the jail officials to work with him to get transferred, what can he do? His public defender said that she was alarmed that he was still in the first jail, because he was supposed to be transferred the same day of the plea. She, further, stated that the Interstate Detainer Act applies and he should be moved so that he can have the case in the other county heard. However, the person has not been transferred - even after talking to the Warden of the current holding facility. More concerning is that the paperwork and public defender for the facility he needs to be transferred to are waiting on him and cannot begin the processing of the warrant and charge until they receive him. His 180 days for the case to be processed in the county are running out and he will not have the opportunity for any concurrent time.

I am accused of "Interference with a peace officer" in

I am accused of "Interference with a peace officer" in Wyoming, citation code no: 6-5-204. This is the definition on the Justia US Law Site: A person commits a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment for not more than one (1) year, a fine of not more than one thousand dollars ($1,000.00), or both, if he knowingly obstructs, impedes or interferes with or resists arrest by a peace officer while engaged in the lawful performance of his official duties.I received a citation for fishing without a WY fishing license, and I then provided false identity information to the officer (name, address, phone, dob). The following day the officer then discovered I had lied. I am guilty and intend to plead guilty.I have a hearing in Jackson Hole on Thursday, 7/28, and need to know if I should have an attorney present. It's considered a misdemeanor.Please don't answer if your response is simply, "yes, it's advised that you have an attorney present."Thanks!Michael
