Son in law was arrested 2 wks ago on a charge from 2005. Felony injury to child 3rd degree . His child was 7 mos & arm got stuck in side of crib..he accidentally broke it while trying to get him free. He passed 3 lie detectors. Now his county is backlogged 800 felony cases, trying to catch up & his case came back up. I guess it was shelved after initial investigation. He wasnt read his rights at time of arrest and was not arrainged. We posted bail after 2 days of being there,,,the DA wont talk to him and says that the court wont appoint him counsel because he posted bail....is this correct???
We are looking into lawyers, but locally several arent taking felony cases or dont like dealing with the DA there. We are in Texas.
