The attorney said he will not ask for a continuance based on new information. Relative feels attorney wants him to plea and relative was prepared to plea. He does not trust court appointed attorney will provide him adequate counsel at trial. Relative is innocent with no past arrests. He is scheduled to appear in court tomorrow for a plea. Should he state his concerns about new information, a continuance and the fact he is now seeking new counsel? His attorney will not bend and said he needs to either take the plea or go to trial. Any chance if he asks for this, judge would get mad, make him take plea and then slap him with a maximum sentence? Prosecutor has stated would accept low to mid range of the sentence. Need some quick advice thank you.
