My son is charged with several crimes. The public defender wants my son to plead guilty 1st to allow an oral arguement before the judge. My son has multipe disabilties and some are related to why he is tempted to commit crimes. We are told the only other option would be to plead guilty to all crimes and allow the judge to decide commitment in an institution instead. I don't understand why the requirement to plead guilty. The public defender shows no interest in the psychological evaluations that would help the defense. I was asked to get additional written documentation from evaluator but can't get in time. PD doesn't want to reschedule oral arguement. I don't understand this. It doesn't make sense to me. The disabilities are the most important defense my son has and time is running out.
