I have appeared in court twice and must appear for an Omnibus hearing on Monday, July 15th. My court-appointed attorney is telling me to plead guilty and that he will argue that I should be "let off easily" as I am disabled, on a fixed income, and living in public housing, all of which will be threatened by a conviction. No guarantees.
Both I and an investigator retained by the Public Defender have evidence strongly suggesting that the post was made by someone who hacked my Facebook account. My attorney has thus far ignored it. Over the past three days I have discovered material which not only adds to the evidence of my innocence, but strongly suggests that people working for my attorney attempted to destroy evidence which is favorable to me.
What can I do? Should I tell the judge?
