I'm a first time offended with 2 cases in 2 different counties, however the judge that is giving me grief, constantly brings up my other case she is not over seeing and has no authority over..I was eligible for AR she denied. My cause involve forgery in her court against my old job. The last deal they want me to accept is pay 13000 In restitution, in 3 days, 2 years probation, and want to take my nursing license.? How can she do this and expect me to work or live and raise 4 kids with no job and have a record
As a general rule, judge shopping is frowned upon. You would need to ask the judge to recuse themselves. Nothing here indicates you have any basis for a new lawyer. Best thing you can do is hire a CT attorney.
NOT LEGAL ADVICE, NO ATTORNEY-CLIENT PRIVILEGE CREATED. FOR INFORMATION ONLY. DO NOT RELY ON ANY ADVICE YOU RECEIVE FROM ME OR ANY OTHER ATTORNEY ON THIS FORUM. Legal advice comes after a complete review of the facts and relevant documents and an expressed (written) agreement of representation that forms attorney-client confidentiality. Neither of these two events can occur in this forum. Mr. Rafter is licensed to practice in the Commonwealth of Virginia and the US Federal Courts in Virginia. His answers to any Avvo question are rooted in general legal principles--NOT your specific state laws. There is no implied or actual attorney-client relationship arising from this education exchange. You should speak with an attorney licensed in your state, to whom you have provided all the facts before you take steps that may impact your legal rights. Mr. Rafter is under no obligation to answer subsequent emails or phone calls related to this or any other matter.
It’s totally up the the Judge wether to recuse herself from a cave she is presiding over, either on her own decision or on a Motion by a party appearancing before her.
If you’re not currently represented by counsel I strongly urge you to consult with one . This is a criminal defense question, not the category you’ve placed it in . I’m changing it
I agree with the other attorneys who have answered. I would tell you to get a lawyer, but you wrote that you have one in your comment to Mr. Woolf. You need to work with that person and quit shopping for legal advice on discussion boards like Avvo.
There is one more thing. Do not post anything else on this web site, any other web site, or any social media site (Facebook, Twitter, etc.). There is no attorney-client privilege for what you post for the whole world to see. The police and the prosecutor can use anything you post against you.
