As a public defender in my daughter's case - the victim is the "courthouse", and the person that snitched out my daughter is a convicted felon trying to save his own skin. So he lied about my daughter to get a better deal. This lawyer was taking on my daughters case along with the guy that snitched her out. Big - Huge - conflict of interest. He did this and with intent to continue, until we got a new lawyer. Sketchy, sneaky, Allegan County , MI everyone is in everyone's pockets there, and if you cross them in any way - your done for. How can the victim prosecute the offender? In Allegan County, MI - you can get away with it. Apparently.
