You have not posed a question to be answered. I am not so sure what you meant by stating that your public defender thinks the case will die away. If you have criminal charges against you, nothing will die away, unless is dismissed in court. Please clearly pose your question so Avvo attorneys can respond to you.
I agree that there is no question here. You have an attorney.. Work with you attorney.
