The MAR is a vital document in that it gives someone incarcerated a chance to appeal to the court for one last gasp of air, so to speak, AFTER being locked up. One last look from a judge. ALL forms for motions, including the fabled MAR … go BACK through the original court. In this case, Haywood county, NC.
Alexander filed his MAR shortly after showing up in POLK correctional. His mother and I assisted via the US mail in preparing it.
When I went to the haywood county clerk of court recently to pull documents pertaining to Alexanders case I asked to view the MAR and the judges subsequent response.
The clerk informed me there was no MAR in his file … WHY? … that is currently being investigated but for once, I don’t think the blame in this situation falls on Haywood County … so, who else could have intercepted this document?…. why would anyone want to obstruct justice???
