I was arrested and I'm out on bond for a third degree felony theft charge. My uncle said I stole his gold during the summer and called the cops on December the 3rd. He took a pawn slip out of my bedroom and used that but the gold I pawned was given to me by my father. He said if I ever need money sell it so I did and got 480 dollars for it. Now my uncle found his gold and at court they wouldn't let him tell them im innocent. I don't know what to do because I can't afford a lawyer.
Where is your father - can he testify that the gold was a gift to you from him? Can it be identified?
Hopefully you can work things out with your uncle. That is awful if he would accuse you of that.

Apply for a court appointed lawyer. Sounds like a case you should really fight. Not good to have this on your record. www.giardinolawfirm.com
DUI / DWI Attorney
Well you can't represent yourself on a felony. You may qualify for a court-appointed attorney. You are going to have to tell the court that you need to apply for one. You have the right to a jury trial and to call your uncle and father as witnesses. An experienced attorney should be able to get the DA to back down.
