My son & I have been estranged for the past 6 years. Every time I visit my best friend, who lives 3 houses from my son, he harasses her, her husband & I. Recently he tried to run down she & I with his car. There was clear tire track evidence to support this allegation but no photographs were taken and the police report stated there was no evidence to support the charge. The magistrate charged my son w/ 2 cts of misdemeanor assault w/ deadly weapon. a wk after the incident my son and daughter in law called deputies and reported that the 3 of us were at his children's bus stop harassing he & his wife. 2 deputies responded & questioned all 5 people. No charges were assessed. in court my son's atty subpoenaed the captain of the dept and 2 deputies called to the bogus charges not the deputies called when charges were assessed. I attempted to file a complaint w/ the capt against 1 of the deputies in the bogus charges for his rude behavior and wasn't allowed to do so. I eventually filed complaints w/ the capt's superior against both he and the deputy.
The attorney could have subpoenaed anyone with direct knowledge of the situation, even if they were not personally involved in the transactional occurrence itself. It is not entirely clear from your post as to why exactly your son's attorney made the choice that he did, but I assume there was some rationale. You can hire a lawyer of your own to look into it if you wish, but I see nothing obviously egregious. There are clearly a lot of facts in this situation that need clarification and sorting out.
