David Nagle was my son's court appointed attorney. He was recently out of the district attorneys office, and was friends with the prosecutor. My son was falsely accused, and Mr. Nagle promised to request money to investigate my son's case by interviewing witnesses who were friends of the supposed victims. These witnesses had contradicted the statements of both supposed victims, according to the police report. This attorney never did any investigation. I investigated to the extent I was able, and presented exculpatory evidence to David Nagle who ignored it. The two "victims" ended up admitting that they lied. But David Nagle INSISTED that my son plea to SOMETHING. In hindsight he was just doing his assistant DA friend a favor, by putting another notch on his belt. I guess this is the reason that public defenders are known as "public pretenders".
