    For you to have power of attorney to exercise on behalf of your parents you would need to have a WRITTEN power of attorney document signed by them, giving you such authority. It would be ideal if the document was prepare by an attorney.

    Read your post several times, still not exactly sure what you are asking. I think you are wondering if a paid attorney is better than a public defender. Is that right? My opinion: Better lawyer? No. More aligned to client concerns?Sometimes. More willing to go to trial? Yes.

    Based on you post alone, representing yourself would be a BIG mistake. You need to do whatever it takes to hire a criminal defense attorney--sell property, borrow money from friends/family.

    My gut tells me you did not speak with your husband’s Commanding Officer.
