Freeport, TX asked in Criminal Law and Legal Malpractice for Texas

Q: I need a question answered very serious and important thank you.

Hi I went to court, the paper I signed stating what my next court date was, said the 14th of November. My bail bondsman sent me an email on the 6th saying that I had court on the 14th. My court date on the 14th was cancelled I have a text from my lawyer to prove it. This is where I get lost. I get an email from my bailbondsman saying I missed court on the 8th and the 14th. I never signed anything saying the 8th. The bail bondsman is saying I had court on the eighth. Every time my bail bondsman sends me an email they send the paper showing my charge, every action that has ben taken on my case I believe it's called register of action. So first how can they just spring a court date on me after I signed the one at court stating the 14th. 2ndly, my bail bondsman sent me that paperwork on the 6th 2 days before this supposed court date. So how is it that within 2 days they just popped up new court date. I also had to fire my lawyer and that is crazy in itself. Complete negligence as lawyer.

A: There is simply no way anyone could possibly answer this question in this forum. You should talk to your bail bondsman and show him the paperwork you were given showing your court date. And get another attorney to investigate for you
