What should I do to prepare for my pre-trial to two charges I am falsely being accused of?
I am being charged with two separate cases but, they are being put together. One is a switchblade charge. I called the police because I saw kids in my backyard and neighbors' yard. I called twice, asking to remain anonymous. The hbpd knocked on my door and I opened it. I took them into my back yard to explain. While explaining, the officer from behind pulls a "utility knife" from my pocket. And then dismissed my reasoning. Never read my rights, just took the knife. Later I received notice of a charge filed. Side notes: My neighbor's house was broken into not even a couple weeks later, and 2, I was stabbed 9 days after my concerned call.
The other charge is an under the influence of a controlled substance. A friend picked me up to go play pool, I was a passenger. Not knowingly, she ended up getting pulled over and searched. The police found everything on her and nothing on me. Because of my prior stabbing, and major head trauma, the officer worded his questions, to where he some how found me guilty, without a confession. I was taken in, blood work done, and it came up for methamphetamine and Aphatimanes. I am on numerous medications which include my prescription that was taken at the scene, Xanax. The report states I was restless, fidgety, anxious, dry mouth body tremors and etc. I have ADHD, PTSD and sever anxiety, considering the Xanax prescription. What Can I do? Its my pre-trial and my public defender is not doing anything to help.
