Sixth Ammendment Violation

RE: Arizona criminal case CR-663715

To Whom It May Concern:
This is a letter of notice. My name is Richard Dale McClure. I am the defendant in Pima County criminal case number CR-63715.

On September 20, 1999, a motion for continuance was heard o this matter. This motion was filed against my wishes and without my knowledge. Judge Michael Alfred then granted this motion despite my verbal objection. Furthermore, I was then thrown out of court for speaking in my own behalf.

Prior to this my rule eight rights had already been violated by two and a half months to allow an attorney to prepare for trial. At the end of this two and a half months, the attorney claims that he hadn't even begun to prepare for this trial. His excuse was that the he had just received the transcripts from the previous on the 17th of September. He also scheduled a trial of lesser severity in front of mine.

I have been incarcerated since October 30, 1998 on these charges and my trial should take precedence. The court and my court-appointed attorney have showed unjust bias by wrongfully violating my 14th Amendment rights to due process of the law.

This letter of notice states that I had no desire and gave no one authority to waive my rule 8 rights.

Sincerely,
Richard McClure
