My friend was arrested last Sept and sent to a county jail because he could not afford the bail. He did not take the breath analyzer so he was given a blood test by force to which he was slapped with another assault charge. He is still in jail for almost 6 months now. He was arraigned last December. My questions are :
1. Can he write his public appointed lawyer to lower his bond?
2. Why until now he hasn't heard from his lawyer or has not asked his side? Are public appointed lawyers limited to getting in touch with their client/defendant?
3. Can he request for a speedy trial?
4. Is it true that The State has 90 days to indict someone on a felony? If this is true then what should he be done?
His mother called up his lawyer but seems uncooperative. Can he change lawyer? Is someone out there able to help my friend? How is the payment scheme?
My friend regret his drinking and driving. While in jail, of course he's sober but he said he is tougher now to resist alcohol.He has learned his lessons. He just needed a second chance.
