Novi, MI asked in Criminal Law, Constitutional Law and Legal Malpractice for Ohio

Q: regarding questions

I was originally arraigned for F-3 Domestic Violence, F-4 Attempted Domestic Violence, and F-3 Abduction from Municipal Court, bound over to Common Pleas. The Grand Jury indicted me on Attempted Felonious Assault and Abduction. The Judge, in arbitrium judicis, as a one man grand jury, added a sexual motivation element strictly to the lesser included offense of Unlawful Restraint, driving the Jury directly to the originating charge of Abduction (absent sexual motivation) then omitted the details of this trial structure from the face of the record, and failed to enter the papers of case, (Jury Instructions and Verdict Form) afterwards of denying me Electronically Stored Information that would have established my wife was messaging someone on the phone (strongly believed to be a police officer of the charging municipality) for 7 of the 8 hrs claimed of an Abduction. They also completely overlooked the relevancy of properly documenting my wife’s SSI Dis./Borderline Personality Disorder.
