THE SHAWN GRAHAM GOVERNMENT TO CONTINUE WITH THEIR ASHLEY SMITH POLICY???
Yes, this is a very serious issue that would only happen in a third world country.
People are charge by the Saint John Police force and are told they have no right to a lawyer.
When I was charge in Saint John?
Legal Aid New Brunswick twice denied me the right to a lawyer.
The system knew that I couldn’t afford a lawyer so therefore I had to represent myself in court.
You can read the blog by clicking below -
It would have been an impossible task because I wouldn’t have known how the system works?
A fine example is when Harold Doherty first approached me on this issue and asked me - What did the Police say in their disclosures?
I quickly answered - Disclosures? What’s that????
He soon found out that I didn’t know nothing about the Justice system.
Lets say that I would have represented myself?
I would have been found guilty and put on probation.
Once I broke the probation? I would have landed in Jail.
Once behind bars? I would have had an attitude problem therefore punching someone in the face.
The guards or the Government would have told the Judge - Charles has a behavior problem. He has ADHD!!!
The Judge would have add years to my sentence.
I was told that it’s up to the Federal Government to give more money to this Province for Legal Aid?
This is very scary stuff!!!
How many people are in jail because they had no right to a lawyer when they were charge by the Saint John Police Force?
Is this just a way to keep the less fortunate in jail for years????
Is this the reason the P.C. Party never bought this issue during questions period at the New Brunswick Legislature???
Because they knew that it's a way to silent the less fortunate in this Province!!!
After the verdict of the Judge, I was confronted by the media. The first thing I said - I wish you people would cover the issue that I was denied the right to a lawyer!!!!
This was way before we ever heard of Ashley Smith!!!!
Why isn't the main stream media covering this issue?
