my husband and I were arrested for felony-forgery charges and don't know what to do now. Our 1st hearing is coming up in a couple of weeks. We don't have an attorney because we can't afford one. We are afraid of a court-appointed attorney because our best interests will not be kept since he will not be making any money off of us. The only time we went before a judge was after arrest to set bail. We begged, borrowed, and committed our next born child to get bonded out but now we are very worried. We are in Arkansas and we are dealing with some very crooked people. We were questioned upon arrest even after requesting legal counsel or representation. Nobody cares about people's rights once they are in jail.
