I was placed on self supervised probation after disturbing the order charges from problems in jail and pulling a fire alarm because of being kicked out of the doctors office with my girlfriend. Then I was put on probation with solicitation charges because of things i said on the telephone that never did happen. Well on probation the probation officer gave me a difficult time after I got in a fight at the bar and I had a dirty U.A. My public defender says it may result in a weekend in jail. I feel i have been overly punished. I feel a lot of stress is being placed on me and my family. I feel due process of law and freedom of speech are not being upheld. I feel that warrants where not properly presented at my arrest. I feel I have been like abused by the system. Maybe even sexually. Help?
To the extent there is a question, no, if there is a plea deal, that will govern what will happen to the charge (whether dismissed, reduced, etc.). As to your question about whether to sue because of undue stress, due process, freedom of speech, I see no grounds for redress under this set of facts.
The comments listed here are of a general nature and should not be understood to create a formal attorney-client relationship -- that is, I am not, and I cannot give you legal advice here. I am licensed in Iowa and to become your attorney, I need to understand the particular facts and circumstances of your legal question and, in all likelihood, need to either meet with you personally or in a fairly detailed conference call.
I'm sorry to hear that you have so many negative feelings about the criminal justice system, but none of them really present a defense. To the extent you have made a plea bargain and ADMITTED certain violations of the law, it will be quite difficult to now have the charges dismissed. You should discuss all of your concerns with YOUR attorney. Best of luck to you and I hope you feel better soon.
