I don't practice in KS but that just doesn't sound right. If you are charged with a crime and face criminal prosecution you should definitely have an attorney.

If you have a bond, you should have a court date. If you have a court date you need an attorney. The state can work with who they want to as far as CI's, but an attorney, including a prosecutor, has special obligations when dealing with an unrepresented person. You must ask yourself do you trust them if they don't want you to have representation.

I would strongly recommend you hire an attorney, or at least speak to a local attorney as soon as possible.
