Law in Hyperspeed

The ADDventures of a practicing attorney in a southern state. I hope those in the law and those with ADD can find some comfort and help in these postings. The only real person in this blog is the author. The people described in this blog mostly represent sterotypes of some of the characters I see in my travels.

My Lawyer Made Me Plead Guilty

A man points a gun at an officer, struggles with him, bites him on the hand and is arrested.  He was stopped for an allegation of aggravated indecent assault.  He claims that since he still owes his lawyers $15,000 out of a $25,000 retainer, his lawyers pressure him to plead guilty on the night before trial and the next day he does.  He appeals his case he is given a new trial.

Unfortunately we don’t know what evidence the prosecution had on this guy.  Clearly they had the officer who would testify that this guy pointed a gun at him.  Should he have gotten a new trial?  In my state, this person most likely would not get a new trial.

Here’s the details.
