I am now 63 years old and I have lost everything dear to me ---- my child, my freedom, and my dignity.
I was arrested in March of 2009. I experienced one mistrial and then in the second trial was convicted of a 10 year landmark conspiracy case originating in 1995 and spanning to 2005 for marijuana importation. I was sentenced to double life and 80 years. The government released many other persons, did not charge certain others, and provided immunity to others, for their testimony to gain my conviction.
Such sentences were vacated in 2011 by direct appeal because of Miranda errors upon arrest and of jury instruction errors in the second trial. I was remanded to Miami, Florida for a possible third trial.
In the next phase (in 2012) my appointed attorney who presented himself to be a "friend of the Judge and a super lawyer" coerced me to plead out to a previous uncharged offense of money laundering.
He stated that he had a private plea deal with the government to occur after sentencing (apart from the written plea deal). I received the maximum 20 years in 2013 - that deal has now (in October of 2013) been breached, the attorney for the plea, nor the one appointed after him, for sentencing are responsive.
I have no other recourse now except to motion the court for ineffective assistance by same attorney(s). This motion was due by January 2014.
The Government has seized and confiscated everything; there is nothing remaining materially.
I was a single parent to my child for over a decade - financially I am destitute and cannot support my child's quest for a University, nor my quest for justice, nor any other matter. Personally I am exhausted mentally and physically depleted. I do not have the knowledge nor the energy to affect this 2255 motion properly due to the fact that as of October 2013 I have become ill.
I was born in Frankfurt am Main, on January 21, 1950. I was brought to the United States in 1961 and have remained here for 53 years. If I survive this sentence, I will be deported to Germany upon release, which will not be until 2025, unless by appeal for ineffective counsel. I am remanded for another trial once again. If that occurs, I plan to not allow any other defense attorney, nor the governments prosecutor's, to trick me into another plea deal and will proceed to trial once more, risking another life sentence.
Assistance is desperately needed in every aspect. I appeal for help from the International community.
