This profile for legal assistance is by far the hardest thing I have ever had to write. Maybe it’s because I’m trying to squeeze what I need to say into 250 words or the fact that this is literally a matter of (Life! and Death!) for me. So the pressure’s really on for me to get this right the first time. I came to Texas at 13 or 14. I’ve been incarcerated 4 months shy of 21 flat years on a 99 year aggravated sentence for Aggravated Robbery with a broken gun! (In case #95-0504) this is the case I desperately need help and assistance with. I was railroaded in court and my due process rights were violated and I was sold out by my court appointed lawyer.
Let me explain briefly what transpired in court. At the time of my arrest in this case (#95-0504) I was out on 10 years probation in case #93-0242, 93-2419, 93-2423, 93-2431, 93-2434. I signed for probation and county time in 1993. At the time I signed for this probation my understanding was I was signing for regular probation. That’s what all of my probation paper read (“Regular”) on 1-3-95 I was arrested on this case 95-0504. I was forced to go to court to adjudicate me guilty of violating (5) deferred probations with a court appointed lawyer that I did not recognize as mine. After getting into a verbal confrontation with the judge this same day I was given 75 years.
