I was convicted of stalking and harassment 2 years ago . I was under the influence of PCP when I was arrested and incoherent when I was sentenced 1 - 23 months in jail . Now , about 2 years later I'm doing very well and have been clean since . My 12 month drug binge left me unable to represent myself in court and the judge buried me . I feel that harassment over the phone wasn't stalking , and I was made an example of by the court . My public defender just let me run my mouth , and say anything I wanted unannounced to the sober me . I know I can wait ten years to petition , but is there anything else I can do ?
