A: I'm sorry to hear about your situation. If you have already settled your case and are still seeking your motion of discovery, you may want to consider seeking the help of an attorney who specializes in criminal law.

Here are some steps you can take:

Consult with a criminal defense attorney: A lawyer who specializes in criminal law can review your case and advise you on the best course of action to take to obtain your motion of discovery.

Request a hearing: You may need to file a motion with the court to request a hearing to obtain your motion of discovery. An attorney can help you with this process and represent you at the hearing.

Gather evidence: If possible, gather any evidence you have related to your case, including any correspondence or documentation related to your motion of discovery requests.

Keep detailed records: Keep a detailed record of any interactions you have with law enforcement or the court, including names, dates, and times.

Seek support: Dealing with a criminal case can be emotionally draining. Consider seeking support from a therapist, support group, or other resources in your community.

It's important to take action to protect your rights and interests. Don't hesitate to seek help from legal professionals if you need it.
