This lawyer,Bruce Tarbox,represented me about 5 years ago.I was charged with 4 criminal charges.2 were more serious and the other 2 was not.He didn't fully investigate my case like he should.Before my trial,he was working with prosecutors on a plea deal not consulting with me first.A few weeks later,he came to me with a plea deal he made with prosecutors. The deal was to plead guilty to 2 charges,spend 2 weeks in jail plus 3 years probation and they'll dropped the other 2 charges.Not knowing much about criminal law myself,the 2 charges that they're going to dropped was the 2 lesser serious ones.Considering I've been in the US over 20 years with no criminal record,he could've tell them to dropped all charges or go to trial where I have a huge chance of winning.He didn't do neither! Instead,he persuaded me to plead guilty and accept the deal because its a good deal! Smh!!! Also under Padilla law,all defense attorneys are required to advise their clients of immigration consequences and to help their clients avoid getting convicted of crimes which is deportable under immigration law! Mr.Tarbox never did any of that! And now I'm deported to my country! And when I was in the immigration detention center,I filed for post conviction relief and my post conviction lawyer confronted Mr.Tarbox to find out about my case and what happened? Mr.Tarbox was defensive and lied to my lawyer about it! Now I'm deported and I have 2 convictions on my record that I didn't do or guilty of!
