Q: I was and charged with a class A felony on a vouluntary drug test in which I was never shown or given any results.
The child does not belong to me nor do I have any legal rights to.I had to bail out of jail and was assigned a public defender but on the court date the public defender was a no show.The judge then tells me that I would have to hire one.I hired a one and my case was dismissed.My question is that is there anything I can do about this because the only I went to jail was because a petition was entered in to court hearing I which my name was mentioned but yet I was never subpoenaed or anything. AlsoThe place I went and took my drug which was in a different county then which I live released my results to a third party but never sent me any.i never signed a release form or anything like that. I called and got my file from my lawyer after the case was over and there is no drug test results nor was there anything of a arrest warrant. Just my bond paper and a affidavit of a compliant that's it.
A: The affidavit of complaint is the charge and the bond is evidence of your being incarcerated. But why would you take a voluntary drug test? That will hurt any suit for a GTLA action under 18 USC §1983. You will have to identify the actual persons that did this, and you will have trouble finding a competent attorney to file within the SOL.
