Robert Broyles Denied New Legal Counsel In Attempted Murder Case

Casper Police Dept.

A man facing attempted murder charges will not get new legal counsel.

Judge Catherine Wilking has ruled that 35-year old Robert Broyles has failed to meet factual good cause to substitute counsel in his case.

Broyles has pleaded not guilty to one charge of attempted second degree murder, two counts of aggravated assault, and one count of possession of a deadly weapon with unlawful intent.

The charges stem from a Fourth of July incident, at Morad Park in Casper.

Broyles requested new counsel, claiming that his current public defender, Tim Cotton, made biased comments toward him and he does not feel like he is getting a fair trial.

Broyles claims that Cotton told him that because he is homeless, he would not be able to pay for an appeal, if found guilty and that he should take a plea deal.

Cotton has denied the allegations and told Judge Wilking that Broyles has been incriminating himself, by sending letters and doing interviews with the media.

In her ruling, Judge Wilking stated that the 6th Amendment, does not guarantee that a defendant will have a meaningful relationship with legal counsel.

Broyles is being held on $100,000 bond awaiting trial, and could receive life in prison if convicted.
