What can I do with my public defender brings up a competency issue because I Wanted to challenge jurisdiction?
1 attorney answer
If your attorney (or the prosecutor or the judge) believes you are incompetent to proceed, they have a duty to raise the issue with the court. You should discuss with your attorney why they are concerned about your ability to understand the proceedings and assist in your own defense. If your attorney raises competency, even over your objection, you will be evaluated to determinate if you are fit to proceed.
As far as challenging personal subject matter jurisdiction on a criminal case, it sounds like you may have been reading some sovereign citizen literature. This stuff is all nonsense and never has and never will be applied in a real courtroom. A new attorney who is unaware of sovereign citizen thinking may well think a person who is asking about these things is incompetent because they make absolutely no sense.
