I have an on going evading police with wanton disregard for safety if others. Since the incident happened I had heart failure resulting in anoxic brain damage I was down without air for 14 minutes. I have a public defender who is not forthcoming to myself. Rely on my family to take care of things. I have memory loss I don't recall anything I have my girlfriend typing this she reminds me of everything. My public defender set me up with an interview with a Dr who said I am incapable to stand trial now the committee of three want me to go to the state prison mental hospital. What should I do ? I feel like the public defender is working directly with the da s office and us trying to get me committed for memory loss.
A criminal defense lawyer is a lawyer (mostly barristers) specializing in the defense of individuals and companies charged with criminal activity. Some criminal defense lawyers are privately retained, while others are employed by the various jurisdictions with criminal courts for appointment to represent indigent persons; the latter are generally called public defenders. The terminology is imprecise because each jurisdiction may have different practices with various levels of input from state and federal law or consent decrees. Some jurisdictions use a rotating system of appointments with judges appointing a private practice attorney or firm for each case. Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Criminal_defense_lawyer
