I just found out the my son had a pre-trial hearing in which he had no lawyer or public defender. I have hired a lawyer, but not for "these charges". My son pleaded no contest (which I'm not even sure what that means) but luckly the judge was a decent one and suggested that maybe he wanted to plead not guility and then have a public defender assigned to him. Has anyone out there had any luck with a public defender? At this point I don't think it would be any worse than the lawyer I hired that I can never get in touch with. Don't public defenders have to pass some type of test or something and be supervised? I just hate to think my son gets someone that doesn't know what he is doing.
