See Section 38.10 of the Florida Statutes and Rule 2.160 of the Florida Rules of Judicial Administration regarding disqualification of a judge. The opinion of the officer is not necessarily a determining factor regarding guilt or innocence.
Mr. Pro Se: You would better served to hire a lawyer to handle the matter ... There are a lot of issues and different ways to attack your problem......
Regarding ineffective counsel, you will need to go down to a local law library or hire a3850 lawyer who can assist you. These issues are complicated and not handled well PRO SE or by yourself.

I agree that you should seek an attorney to write this up and advise you. Many pro se ineffective assistance claims and post conviction motions are thrown out as insufficient. While some defendants are successful, it takes a great deal of work to do one correctly. You should look to hire someone with such an important task. This also has time constraints. Agreed also that whether the officer felt that he should or shouldn't have arrested you might not make a difference.
