Well, this won't allow me to post everything I need to, so I'll say this: my friend is in jail for taking my car without my permission. He was living with me. He has been charged with grand larceny. The public defender is putting him off. He's been in jail over 70 days. I requested charges be dropped (I need the necessary paperwork and even submitted letter to solictor's office and his public defender). He's now being told that he won't get his first court appearance until Sept. 9th! I don't want my friend to do down for this. There has to be a lesser charge! Or no charge at all! Also, how will this thing work when/if he goes to court? Will my requests be considered?? I'm so confused and didn't want it to come to this. Any great advice?? Thanks so much.
