If the Judge continued the pre-lim, then the no show doesn't help you. A second no show, however, may be different.

Ask your public defender. He knows the facts and issues of your case. No one else does, and he wouldn't appreciate interference and advice to his client from another attorney. If you want to hire new counsel, or consult in detail for a legal opinion, then feel free to contact me to arrange a paid consultation.
