Are public defenders in cahoots with the courts
1 attorney answer
Your question is whether your attorney is in "cahoots" with the judge or the prosecutor. My answer is: I doubt it.
1. Before you went to court, did the court assign an attorney to represent you?
2. If so, did you actually talk to the attorney assigned to represent you?
3. If not, why not?
It has been my experience that, if there was an attorney assigned to you, and if the attorney was not present for your change of plea and sentencing, the judge would postpone the hearing and set if for a day when the attorney can be present.
The description of what took place does not square with my experience in Ohio Courts.
