My fiance and I were pulled over illegally, the cop lied about why he pulled us over. Then the video of the traffic stop disappeared. We were both arrested after an illegal search and he found paraphanalia on the driver who claimed the findings. 2 different affidavits were signed and 2 stories were told on each. I hired a "bulldog" lawyer who took my money, promised to address the situation, and start fighting it in 2 days. Who then showed me a phone with a bullet hole through it and said that's what our heads would look like if he gets it dismissed and we ever get caught again. To this day he has not shown up. I got my free lawyer to share the discovery with him who then turned and cussed me out for doing what was done... wtf is going on here
Your story is somewhat unbelievable as to all the corruption alleged on the part of the police and your attorney. If you do not like your retained attorney get another attorney or ask for a court appointed attorney.
If you have lost confidence in your attorney you should seek alternate counsel immediately.
I am glad that you have a lawyer you now feel confident in. You can ask that your prior lawyer return any money that you paid to him. Now is the time, though, to focus on fighting your case.
