I was charged with violation of probation and new charge. I have a legal aid lawyer with whom I spent very little time. I have plead guilty to new charges and the violation of probation. This is federal in New York. I'm suppose to go for sentencing soon, but the legal aid has not advised me of anything on how is he going to defend me is too late to ask for a new lawyer ?? this one that I heve is very rude and has not disscused any defending strategies. According to the probation dept they are recommending 6mos in jail. Can I avoid this.Please respond as soon as possible.
