Shannon: ...
My daughter was arrested for a simple marijuana possession. She was stopped while in my vehicle she was carrying her knife on her as she usually did for her own personal use. I spoke to the prosecutor at GA 21 Norwich Connecticut. He informed me that she could only apply for accelerated rehabilitation for the marijuana charge but not the knife because that is considered a felony . That was over a year ago and her first and only arrest. she was not allowed to speak with the public defender at the ga 21 courthouse even though we requested. She was given NO council even though she met income requirements. She is now pregnant and has moved several times in the past year .She has never been trouble before or after the day of her arrest and there is now a 7,500 dollar bond out on her for failure to appear. I BELIEVE THE COURT SHOULD OFFER HER THE COUNCIL THEY DENIED HER TO BEGAN WITH ALONG WITH HER ACCELERATED REHABILITATION. Are there any laws to make this possible?
