My question involves criminal law for the state of: Georgia
My Friend is in jail for a felony possession of amphetamines charge and has been denied bail because she is on probation in another county. She has been in jail for 8 weeks now and her court appointed lawyer has missed 2 court dates. The next court date is set for a week from and we don't expect him to make it either.
If we request a new court appointed lawyer, will her court date be changed again causing her to sit in jail even longer?
