A friend of mine - wrongly convicted - received Kerrie as his court-appointed counsel for his appeal. What a joke. She filed a one-issue brief and didn't even correctly cite the record. If you know anything about appeals, you know that you can only further appeal the issues that were preserved. She preserved one out of the myriad of issues in the trial court, so now he's screwed. He said he received very little communication from her and he filed a motion to force her to withdraw, which was granted over 12 days ago now. The court ordered immediate withdrawal and transfer of the record items and she has yet to do so.

I wanted a Rule 32 in my case. I filed the paperwork for a post conviction relief (Rule 32) and asked to be assigned a public defender to help me with my case. The judge granted the public defender request and assigned Kerrie Droban. The only contact I had was a single letter the office sent me saying she only does work by mail (snail mail) and wont do anything by e-mail or phone. I got to know nothing about what was going on...if anything. Then one day a random letter shows up saying Kerrie Droban's office cant find anything wrong with my case after they looked at the transcripts (this being 6 months after I 1st filed the rule 32 motion) . I understand getting transcripts, but that does not take 6 months. Plus that was not even the problem in my case. My probation officer lied in court, told the judge I had committed 1000 arsons when I have committed zero, not even my crime. My probation was violated because probation violated a court order and punished me for it. How hard is it to put in a motion to clarify, get a response, put in a motion to enforce, and make a judge understand I cant violate probation for doing everything the court says.
