Legal Question

Asked on: 8/10/13, 7:11 am

I requested a free criminal transcript sent to me in prison 7/3/13. Delaware County courthouse said they didn't receive my letter so I sent another one this week and they said it would take 2 weeks before they would sent them to me. I told them I have another trial in 2 weeks and I need them before this. I don't have the money which will probably be $3000 for my lawyer to request them. Will the judge postpone the trial for this reason if my lawyer asks him? And will it be ok for my Mom to write to the judge explaining what happened as to why the transcripts would be sent out late?

It's an excellent reason to ask for a continuance. I would suggest hiring a criminal defense attorney and having him ask for it.
