The altercation started up stairs by the couch. I put my hands on her neck for about 3 seconds and then tried to leave down the stairs with our daughter she pursued me and kept pulling on my shirt the 3rd time she did that and the 3rd time that I twisted away she was for steps above the base of the stairwell and she grabbed all with both hands as hard as she could and when I twisted she went with it in her grip didn't break she fell on the floor injured her neck and had those the only injuries that she sustained. She's been taking latude of her bipolar for years and she drinks heavily at night and I was reading a list of side effects laundry list that she has every one of and is willing to admit that she has every 1 of confusion agitation dizziness lack of motor skills etc... She is actually fallen down the stairs twice since then and it's only been a month and a week pre trial conference is in 5 weeks I have no confidence in my female public defender and her willingness to actually help me
Ok. So you just admitted to committing this crime here in a public forum. You don't put your hands on people's necks - not for three seconds, not even for one. That's domestic abuse. Stop admitting to committing crimes in public and talk to an attorney immediately.
DISCLAIMER: PLEASE do not message me asking follow ups to your question! That's what the forum "comment" feature is for. I am not your attorney here, and I cannot give you legal advice here. To become your attorney, I need to understand the facts and circumstances of your legal situation and meet you face to face.
Putting your hands on her neck is domestic abuse assault. If you are not happy with your attorney, hire someone else. Otherwise, stop admitting to crimes and work with your attorney.
Depending on why you want a new attorney, you can ask for a new attorney to be appointed, and your request might be granted but those type of requests are rarely granted, and then only if there is a really good reason. I would suggest relaying your concerns with your current attorney or hiring your own. As for your posting, Eric and Jeremy are right; I would delete most of the details of your statement if you can because it is not helpful to your case and it really isn't even a question.
