Carl Hueber is either a legal super genius, or extremely lucky. He filed a losing appeal that made it possible to fix a losing PRP to get my conviction overturned. What!? Yeah. I'll explain that later, but first...
Hueber first represented me at resentencing. He shook the prosecutor's hand before it began, after which I felt hiring him was a huge mistake: the handshake didn't look like the one you see before a fight. Hueber wasn't all that impressive in the courtroom, and his motions all failed(two different things, but related). However, he was a good salesman, and suckered me into getting him a bunch of money to file an appeal. Here's where the lucky or super genius comes in.
The PRP filed by another attorney had omissions(at my request because I am a moron) that, by technicality, would/may have caused it to lose unless it were appended. By filing the appeal he kept the sentence from becoming final. This prevented the case from being time barred from collateral attack. This allowed the PRP to be appended. This got my conviction overturned... After a decade.
Hueber also represented me at a bond hearing.
Backstory: Before trial I was out on my own recognizance(OR). I paid $0 bail. It was just my promise to show up to court. After trial, I filed a motion for an appeal bond, which was granted. My sentence was 9 years to life, I did 10 years, and had my conviction was overturned(retrial ordered). I never missed a single day of court, have no criminal record at all, and my behavior was exemplary.
With no conviction, my sentence basically done, being out on OR the first trial, no failure to appears, no priors, nothing... the bail amount he procured was six figures, and not much lower than when I had just a couple months into that 11 to life sentence. Yes, it was 11 and then turned into 9, but that's another story.
I don't know if my review was that helpful, or if Hueber was all that helpful. He's either lucky, or a super genius. That makes him either a bad attorney, or a bad-ass attorney. These are just the facts.
Basis for the rating. THE APPEAL: Six stars or No stars. RE-SENTENCING AND BOND: The rest of his representation was as disappointing as the average attorney, so three stars. Weighing it all in, and the importance of each - the average is 3 stars with a deviation of 2 stars. That means he should have 1 star or 5 stars and this review was pointless.
