Am I able, as a friend of the defendant, to file a motion for bond reduction and a bond for an FTA and to get him a conflict attorney assigned to him, because the man who wrote a statement against him was just arrested on the same charges and is assigned the same public defender?
2 Answers from Attorneys
Unless you're an attorney you can't file it. However, the public defender will usually withdraw anyway and a conflict attorney will be appointed.
No, you cannot. First, because there already is an attorney of record on the case, anything you file will be a nullity. Second, unless you are a licensed attorney, filing such a motion may be considered the unlicensed practice of law. Third, a conflict counsel will be appointed in order to ensure that both people receive appropriate representation.
