My friend is being charged with child molestation (from 2008-2010). The defendant was 16 in 2008 and 18 yrs old in 2010. Two young girls are accusing him....one was around 6 or 7 and is now 10 or 11....the other was around 8 or 9 and is now 12 yrs old. The youngest one is accusing him of rape (5 times) and the other of dry humping her (5 times as well). His bail amount is $4,000,000! The public defender he was appointed seems like a nice lady but my friend, the defendant, doesn't get a good vibe from her. He feels like she's not working for him. My mother got the same vibe and I don't know if to read into it. She didn't show up to his preliminary hearing yesterday because she was with another defendant....I think in trial. We would like to hire a private defender...is it a good move?
