    I PERSONALLY KNOW of a defendant who Sharmese Hodge ALSO SLANDERED IN COURT (but in this case, it was during a pretrial hearing)...and just like the defense attorney listed above, the "Public PRETENDER" said NOTHING!!!!!

    DESPITE THE MANY INjustices happening to this particular defendant, NO ONE EVER ACKNOWLEDGES BEING ABLE TO HELP, AND SO NOTHING HAS EVER BEEN DONE (this system is MOST DEFINITELY SET UP TO ONLY SERVE "JUSTICE" TO THOSE WHO CAN AFFORD TO BUY IT)!!!!! >:P IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
