Almost 2 years ago I was charged with 2 F6 felonies for theft along with my friend, not Co defendants though and I was never arrested or bonded out was just charged never even served paperwork. I found out seeing it online. Anyway so because of the virus and my lawyer passing away it has yet to be resolved well I got 2 new charges in July and now I have warrants because they enhanced my 2 A misdemeanors and have revoked me in the 1st case. The friend charged with the same has been concluded and he told them it was all him. He was told mine would get dismissed. I am s single mom and am terrified I went through a hard time and don't have much money to spare. I need someone to show me some compassion. Please help me?
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
