Is it logical to try and fly a plane without any experience? You really do need to have an attorney. It is never smart to try and go at such things alone. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed to you by the court.
Hire a competent criminal defense attorney in your area ASAP!
I am trying to give you a general answer to your question. We do not have an attorney-client relationship by this response on the avvo website. I have not been retained to represent you. I am licensed to practice law in Kentucky and in federal court in this state and the Southern District of Indiana. You need to seek legal advice from an attorney licensed to practice in your area..
An attorney can take a bond assignment for part or all of his fee. That way you can be out of jail working on your defense while your attorney is working for you. Don't wait to hire an attorney.
