Deal, or No Deal? The plea bargain

I came upon this information about plea bargains and thought I'd share it with you as well as list it under my Law Links.

Pete (my husband) had to appear in court today regarding the "felon in possession of firearms" charges. He wouldn't let me go to court with him and he didn't bring home any paperwork. He said he was unable to speak to the judge and that the Assistant District Attorney, April Hare, would like to see him get jail time if he doesn't accept a plea bargain! He is very stressed out about this situation. Hunting was a sport that he enjoyed so much, and now Maine State employees have taken that away from him, and turned our lives upside down. One of our sons blames us because his guns were taken from our home and we haven't been able to get them back for him. 

Back in May I blogged about the unreasonable search and seizure in which ten or more agents of the state took over a dozen guns (most belonging to our sons) from our home on April 28, 2011.

Pete's court-appointed attorney, Tobey Jandreau, apparently filed a "motion to suppress statements of defendant" but he never sent a copy of the filing to Pete. Jandreau should have put in a notice of disqualification of the judge. I provided him a copy of the letter I received from the Committee on Judicial Responsibility and Disability acknowledging receipt of my complaint against Judge Hunter.
