I have a court date coming up for something I did not do. It is just a misdemeanor, but if arrested I will lose my job, get kicked out of school, and I wont have anybody to watch my children continuously. I am getting my proof together and I need more time to get prepared for the court date. My lawyer refuses to ask for a continued date. If I show up to court without everything I will go to jail. I heard if I was hospitalized they would be forced to make a continued date. Does anyone know if this is true or anyway I can get it continued to a further date without showing up or getting in trouble.
My court date is Monday. I tried to go with getting a new lawyer, I would need to release my current lawyer and hire a new one that same morning before court started. I would still need to be present wouldnt I? Or could my new lawyer appear for me and get a continued date?
