Legal Question

Asked on: 4/29/13, 7:40 pm

I was held for 871 days in the duval county jail with a $140,000.00 bond and was taken back to forth to court 77 times before I finally plead no contest to a felony d.u.i. due to my deteriorating health. my right to a speedy trial was waived by my first lawyer without my consent and my second lawyers drug their feet representing me. the judge denied my star witness,who was a toxicologists, because his testimony would have "prejudice the jury" since he stated that "I was not impaired at the time of my arrest". what recourse do I have at this point? I have 15 days to appeal.
