I researched in order to find out why someone would waive their preliminary examination and this is what I found. Another reason not to trust public defenders. Besides, as busy as they are, why would you? Remember that this is not legal advice since I am not a lawyer. If you want legal advice, please consult a lawyer.

Representing yourself is just not possible you need to take your head out of your ass. Most people dont know or even understand the laws let alone motion hearings and procedures for them. There is a reason lawyers are required by law(due process rights) for defendants. If a lawyer screws you like this guy was you should look into having disbarment proceedings against him or her. Anytime a lawyer disregards their legal obligation to get the best possible result for their client , they have violated their ethics as a lawyer.

Public Pretenders and attorneys are officers of the very court they are supposed to represent your interest in front of....they cannot resolve their conflict of interest! Thus you are NOT represented!

you give consent when they become your attorney. its a fraudulent process becayse technically you never assign power of attorney to the public defender (sign a contract).

How could any attorney make any deals or arrangements without your consent

Corpus Juris Secundum (legal encyclopedia) ....His first duty is to the courts and the public not to the client....Why would you want to be 3rd in line when it's your butt on the line...DON'T appear Pro Se or Pro Per...both mean you represent yourself, which is great if you are a lawyer, Sui Juris ( as myself) is our way to appear

I am a firm believer in being pro se. Lawyers advise against it all the time. But, we cannot trust any legal aid lawyer.
