My question involves criminal law for the state of: Ohio
My son was indicted for a felony 3 fleeing. This was done by a secret indictment. He was unaware of any warrants or charges against him. He was living a couple States away. He started a new job and went through background checks, acquired State Identification through the State Police Department. No indication that he had a warrant. Information was given by a person in jail to the Detectives ( where secret indictment took place 8 months prior) in exchange for their release from jail and charges on them being dropped. They came to my sonís place of employment and arrested him and he was held until he was extradited back to Ohio. They have made his bond so high we cannot bond him out. Prosecutor told judge his warrant was since August and he was caught out of state. My son told the judge he did not know anything about a warrant and was not in the State at that time and he had plenty of witness's. No bond reduction which makes it impossible to help himself. His court appointed attorney called witnessís and told them not to bother it would not do any good. His trial date is June 30 and we are trying to come up with the money to hire a lawyer. His court appointed attorney told him it was too late to change lawyers. Doesnít he have to have any evidence or witnessís on his behalf turned in before a certain amount of time before trial.
He lost his job, his vehicle, and he has a wife and 3 year old twins who depended on him. The only evidence that I read in their discovery was some girl who said that my son was driving this vehicle that fled. Please Help What should we do?
