Ironically, your next move is not one for the criminal court. Rather it is a petition for a writ of habeas corpus
in civil court, to order the justice court to hold a bail reduction hearing on grounds that your daughter is not a flight risk or a risk to the community, and her bail is unreasonable by any measure.
If the public defender
will not assist in this matter, then you will either have to hire a lawyer, or find a legal aid organization that will help.
Frankly, I would contact the ACLU
, because this is the sort of case that the organization is usually interested in pursuing. You can also contact:
