Of course, the truth is that oftentimes a person with a lot of financial resources can afford to pay for not only a private attorney but for them to utilize more resources. So I will concede that someone who has the financial resources to pay for a better defense has a chance at a better outcome.

But to me that is more a general social issue than an issue of the Public Defender being bad.

I'll end my sidebar on the topic with this thought.....it is true that generally speaking a Public Defender has a larger caseload and, generally speaking, does not have the amount of resources that private attorneys have. In some jurisdictions PD roles are generally covered by private attorneys paid on a case-by-case basis who have cases assigned to them as the county does not want to fund a formal PD's office or lacks the resources to do so. But as I said....not all PD offices are created equal and there are some that are, in fact, quite good. I've seen it work.

Hey, asshat, if you have financial resources, you are not eligible for the PD. Didn't anybody ever tell you that? The financial affidavit to qualify for the PD is readily available at every PD office there is, and in most courtrooms.

The original question that began this thread has been answered by the courts - he was found not guilty.

Soooooo, any further sniping about the relative qualities of assorted lawyers is done and over and unnecessary.

In the end of march beginning of April of 2016 my husband was assaulted by correctional officers and as a result was taken to medical attention for a broken jaw and broken ribs. He did what was correct within his rights and filed for a suit and now they're charging him with "assault on c.o" thus extending his sentence. He's taking it to trial because he knows he didn't do it. I'm worried and scared for him, his court appointed lawyer isn't helping much and the witnesses have been moved to different facilities making contact for the lawyer even harder. Any info or help would be highly appreciated. Thank you
Lien the officer. its really easy. once you do it every thing will return to normal. want help, reply "how?"

Do NOT 'lien' the officer. That will put you squarely in the sights of the FBI, because the only people who do that are 'sovereigns', a movement that came out of the 70s on the theory that (because of slightly bizarre interpretations of criminal and civil law codes done by the Posse Comitatus- look it up) they don't owe taxes, can ignore laws they don't like, can drive without licenses, etc. They've been tossed out of every court in the land since the law caught on to them. The 'lien'ing of various public official is their way at trying to frighten everyone by suing everyone for millions and effectively (if not legally) blackmailing the entire public sector to leave them alone.

That definition will be disputed by Berg Ice, but it's accurate enough to let you know to steer clear of anything to do with that advice.

That kind of nonsense will get NY inmates more jail time. Seen it....not new, still illegal. Don't give illegal advice.
