In Georgia if a bench trial has started how do I get a lawyer?
In Georgia today I had court for simple assault and disorderly conduct. I've never been even asked if I would like a court appointed lawyer nor have I even seen the police report. I even requested a lawyer today. Without my knowledge without my consent they just moreless started a bench trial. Is this legal? How do I get a lawyer to stop this madness that is happening to me? This man took me and the "victim" into a room in the bottom floor of the courthouse with 3 judges and they are trying to put me out of my martial home (restraining order)as well as put me in jail when I have NO PRIORS NOTHING!!!! PLEASE CAN SOMEONE HELO ME TO UNDERSTAND
