I have a Public Defender for a 1st Time misdemeanor DUI. My arrest was one week ago and my date in Court is Monday morning. However, besides a 30sec talk at my release hearing.. I haven't heard one word from her. I've left messages on her personal voice mail as well as the main office line - but have recieved no reply whatsoever.
My fear is that I will not hear from her, show up to the court date alone and may or may not see her there. I have none of the information I need in order to know or decide my actions. What can I do?
Should I call the prosecutor's office and ask for help? An extension?
Show up at the court and request a delay directy to the Judge?
If the defender doesn't show up, does that automatically entitle me to a delay?
