How to prove a judge is biased?

I filed a complaint with the Ohio Supreme Court about a public defender last year and now he is discussing my son’s case with the judge. My son is in jail and the court held a trial without his knowledge and we couldn’t prepare for it. He goes back to court May 23 and I can’t afford a lawyer.

If you get another public defender he or she can file a motion to have your case switched to another judge. And, for your information, it’s unethical for the public defender to discuss anything about your son’s case with anyone involved in the ongoing trial. If your new public defender mentions something to the effect that you are switching courts because "insert name here" talked to the judge, both the judge and the public defender could be reprimanded by their supervisors.

    If you can show a same or similar case had a different ruling by the same judge or even a different one gives a precedence to Prove bias.

    Your son needs to fight this, have him ask for another lawyer and go from there.
