I was recently in court facing charges (1 C Felony and 1 D Felony). I was given a court-appointed attorney.
The attorney assigned to me is the daughter of a court-appointed attorney that "defended" me in court years ago.
He did a terrible job. In fact, he bold-facedly lied to me by telling me that if I signed a plea bargain, the state would drop the C Felony and I would be pleading guilty to the D Felony. I agreed with that, because the D Felony was for possessing illegal material, and the C Felony was for knowingly distributing the illegal material. I NEVER knowingly distributed the material.
Anyway, after I signed the plea bargain, I find out that I had plead guilty to the C and the D was dropped.
Was having his daughter a conflict of interests? And if so, what can be done to rectify it
