The first thing to remember.
Your life savings can be stolen by criminals posing as attorneys, assuring you of justice but they are really working for the benefit of fellow criminals posing as Politicians, Judges, Prosecutors and Law Enforcement. It seems none of them has any risk in violating every law in the books. Maine Judges, Prosecutors and Law Enforcement are free to do absolutely anything they want with immunity.
Until Despicable Maine.org was made that is.
With this site, when they violate there code of ethics, you can knock them down a peg by having a violation on there permanent record. This is the site they don’t want you to know about. It evens the playing field.
It’s sad but in this world there are wolves and sheep, guess which one you are.
The wolves are government and sheep, the rest of us. The legal system is designed to extract as much money possible from you by use of judicial and prosecutorial
misconduct. If you are a member of the club, this is no problem. If you are poor, disabled or considered weak, your an easy mark to pay large fines and sit in there jail so they can get federal funds and sell you everything you need while in there custody. The reality is, Jails are now a booming “for profit” business in Maine and throughout the entire United States. As we all know, “for profit” business’s need customers, just like you. Willing participant or not.
Maine will use every dirty trick in the book
to keep you from leaving the state and keep you their “cash cow”. This website exposes the dirty tricks they use to victimize thousands of Maine citizens each year. To protect yourself from these crooks you must know how they operate.
Then and only then, you can protect yourself and fight back, if needed.
An arraignment is usually the first part of the criminal procedure that occurs in a
courtroom before a judge. The purpose of an arraignment is to provide the accused with a reading of the crime with which he or she has been charged. This is required by the Sixth Amendment to the United States Constitution as a protection against authorities holding those accused in custody for an extended period without telling them the charge. Maine hasn’t figured out how to violate that one yet. For that reason, an arraignment must occur within a set time period after arrest – often 72 hours. If this does not occur, the accused could have an argument that his or her constitutional right to a speedy trial has been violated.
The rules regarding Arraignments
vary depending on whether you are charged with a federal or state crime and vary depending on your state of residence. The rules differ on whether arraignments are required for felony offenses or needed for misdemeanors as well. As a general rule of thumb, if you could be spending time in jail if convicted, you usually will have an arraignment.
The Arraignment in Maine is an Assessment.
Your “lawyer of the day” is not there to help you. There job is to find out how much money you can afford for bail, so the district attorney can ask for ten times that amount at the arraignment itself. Rule of thumb at the assessment; what ever questions you are asked by your “lawyer of the day” will be used by the District Attorney against you in just a few minutes. So this first lawyer is just phishing you for information. Don’t fall for it, remain silent. Saying nothing is probably the best way to handle this fake lawyer. Then again, this lawyer is working directly for the District attorney, so they could be your first “valid” bar complaint. They don’t even hide it. In the court room, watch as your so called “lawyer of the day” picks up the file from the District Attorney’s desk walks over to you, open it up and start asking you questions. They will write your answers in the file and place it right back on the District Attorney’s desk.A few minutes later you will be standing in front of the judge with your fake lawyer and the district attorney. The District Attorney will open the file to see what your “lawyer of the day” wrote down and immediately use it against you, right in front of you. Your “lawyer of the day” will not ask for bail or anything else to help you. Remember, you are automatically guilty, in the eyes of the court. Fair and non bias courts do not exist in Maine. Only a conviction of the man and creating a customer is what matters. If you catch your “lawyer of the day” engaging in this misconduct consider filing a “valid” bar complaint against them. Phishing for information for the District Attorney and helping the DA convict you is not what they are supposed to be doing. This is just typical routine in Hancock County as well as most Maine counties. It is truly sickening they engage in this type of blatant misconduct so often it is just routine.
That’s also where you can help stop this misconduct.
At the appropriate time file your “valid” complaints against each one of them, for each violation. Document everything, if you are in jail or not. Your court appointed lawyer will lie to you by default. Knowing this, use your phone to record any conversation with your lawyer. Also, use an app to record audio at there office, at the court house, etc. Court Appointed Lawyers are not the cream of the crop. That is, not the brightest bulb in the bunch. I think you get the idea. They know they are violating your rights and trying to convict you. If you ask the right questions your lawyer might mess up and expose the misconduct they are pulling on you. Think about that. most lawyers are much more relaxed on the phone than face to face. Ask him the right questions on the phone they might directly threaten you and then you got them by the balls. They will drop all charges, if you don’t file a complaint against them of coarse. Most Maine court appointed lawyers are total crooks.
In Maine the reality is,
It’s the Good O’l Boy’s Club ruling elite against the general public. This wartime economy and pure greed of these people is destroying families and lives throughout the State of Maine with total immunity. Some towns are so bad, it’s not worth living there, like in Winslow. The quality of life is so poor there because the local police who are supposed to protect the public are doing nothing but robbing and terrorizing anyone who dare drive through there jurisdiction.
Plea Bargain Pros and Cons
Although plea bargaining is often criticized, more than 90 percent of criminal convictions come from negotiated pleas. Thus, less than 10 percent of criminal cases actually go to trial. So, what are the incentives behind plea bargaining? Turns out, it’s quite complicated and doesn’t simply rely on one’s guilt or innocence. Below is a sampling of the various points of view among different players within the criminal justice system with respect to plea bargaining, looking at the pros and cons of such an arrangement.
Judges’ Incentives for Accepting a Plea Bargain
For judges, the key incentive for accepting a plea bargain is to alleviate the need to schedule and hold a trial on an already overcrowded docket. Judges are also aware of prison overcrowding and may be receptive to the “processing out” of offenders who are not likely to do much jail time anyway. Generally speaking, plea bargains help create more judicial economy and conservation of limited resources.
The downside to this incentive, however, is the tendency for lower income defendants who believe they’re innocent to accept a plea deal because they lack the funds for a robust defense. You will get virtually no defense what-so-ever with a court appointed attorney.
Prosecutors’ Incentive to Engage in Plea Bargaining
For prosecutors, a lightened caseload is equally attractive. But more importantly, plea bargaining assures a conviction, even if it is for a lesser charge or crime. No matter how strong the evidence may be, no case is a foregone conclusion. Prosecutors often wage long and expensive trials but lose, as happened in the infamous O. J. Simpson murder trial.
Moreover, prosecutors may use plea bargaining to further their case against a co-defendant. They may accept a plea bargain arrangement from one defendant in return for damaging testimony against another. This way, they are assured of at least one conviction (albeit on a lesser charge) plus enhanced chances of winning a conviction against the second defendant.
For example, a low-level criminal may have information that could help prosecutors in their case against a criminal kingpin. But since the incentive for the first defendant is to get a better deal, the reliability of this information sometimes is questionable.
Defendants’ Incentive to Plea Bargain
For a defendant in a criminal case, plea bargaining provides the opportunity for a lighter sentence on a less severe charge, and to have fewer (or less serious) offenses listed on a criminal record. If they are represented by private counsel, defendants also save the monetary costs of a lengthy trial by accepting a plea bargain. Therein lies the potential problem with accepting such a deal: The defendant, even if not actually guilty of the crime, will sometimes take the lighter sentence instead of asserting their constitutional right to a fair trial because they cannot afford an “top-shelf” legal defense.
Applying the Plea Bargain Pros and Cons to Your Case
The decision whether to accept a plea bargain is not an easy one and will depend on the specific facts of your case, your financial standing, your criminal history, and other factors. It also depends on what is being offered. If you’re a licensed professional and your license may be revoked after a felony conviction, pleading out for a misdemeanor charge may guarantee your ability to maintain that license and your livelihood.
While pleading guilty to a crime
you know you didn’t commit can be quite distasteful, sometimes it’s best to be pragmatic and listen to your attorney’s assessment of your chances at trial. Ultimately, it’s a decision you have to make on your own.
Whether to accept a plea bargain is a difficult decision.
While the bargain may give you exponentially less severe penalties than a conviction at trial, the bargain may still leave you with a criminal record that might hamper your future job prospects. Knowing your chances of victory at trial is often the key to your decision, and only an experienced criminal defense attorney can help you to make this call. But with no money, you get a fake lawyer in Maine.
