Franklin Casco Jr. / Misconduct in court!

In December 2006 Mr. Casco took $2, 000 out of my insurance settlement to pay for some of my defense without authorization. He stated I would get money back if my case did not go to trial. As it turns out, I did not receive a jury trial because of Mr. Casco’s misconduct and bribing the witnesses. I have asked the district attorney’s office to file charges of witness tampering & misconduct against this attorney. At one point in time Mr. Casco was asked by my mother if what he was doing was legal. (Paying witnesses $2000.00 for gas that was not stolen) and he stated “I do this type of thing all the time” Mr. Casco also asked my mother to pay the $2000.00 to the victims, she refused. I had no other choice but to pled the case out, or risk 25 years to life in prison. When my mother advised him she needed to get my father’s settlement money to pay for another attorney (we had already retained for $10, 000.00) he stated’’ he was not giving her all that money just to give it to another attorney’’. Mr. Casco also stated he did criminal defense, and he would not charge her as much as the other attorney. My mother advised him that this was a three strikes case, and in my opinion he had no knowledge of the California statue or criminal defense law. He also violated my rights when he advised me and my mother that he was representing the witnesses in another case concerning money owed to them at the same time as he was representing me. Now I have to spend 6 years in prison. Mr. Casco almost cost me more time in prison because the District Attorney was thinking about charging me with another felony (Witness tampering). Mr. Casco has acted in bad faith all this time. My father was paralyzed from his accident, and my wife lost her life in my accident. Then he takes $30, 000.00 from my Fathers insurance claim without his authorization. For a combined amount of $32, 000.00 for cases a public defender would have done for nothing, and much better. Maybe Mr. Casco should return to law school, since it took him 17 years to pass the bar! Or maybe he should read the bar rules Rule 5-310. Prohibited Contact With Witnesses. A member shall not:
(A) Advise or directly or indirectly cause a person to secrete himself or herself or to leave the jurisdiction of a tribunal for the purpose of making that person unavailable as a witness therein.
(B) Directly or indirectly pay, offer to pay, or acquiesce in the payment of compensation to a witness contingent upon the content of the witness's testimony or the outcome of the case. Except where prohibited by law, a member may advance, guarantee, or acquiesce in the payment of:
(1) Expenses reasonably incurred by a witness in attending or testifying.
(2) Reasonable compensation to a witness for loss of time in attending or testifying.
(3) A reasonable fee for the professional services of an expert witness.

DO NOT USE THIS ATTORNEY!

    I read this comment a month or so ago and wanted to research this attorney to see if I could be of any help. As a result, I found that your statements not true. According to Public Record, and Public Records don’t lie, Donald Mark Witt you are a THIRD STRIKER, your charges were ( 1. Manslaughter for killing your wife Stacey Witt: Case # RIM484579, 2. Failure to Register as a Sex Offender Case: # RIF128300 possible sentence 25 to Life. 3. Possession of Meth and Theft Case: # RIF131816) carried a maximum sentence of 25 years to Life in State Prison. You were given credit by the court and should be released in 2009. Due to the professionalism and experience by your attorney, you can count your remaining years in prison with the fingers on your hand! COMPLAIN! COMPLAIN! COMPLAIN! Truth, is court records show you’re a convicted Child Molester, you have Sixteen Felony convictions for Child Molestation, Drugs, Assault with a Deadly Weapon and a lot of other “Bad Stuff”. Please stay in prison as long as possible so society and local communities are much safer. Mr. Franklin Casco, you look like a good Attorney and seem to have very high profile cases. Don’t represent losers and Petifiles like Donald Mark Witt, or bad things can happen to you.
