ACCOMACK COUNTY, Va. (WAVY) – Convicted Eastern Shore arsonist Tonya Bundick has penned a letter from Eastern Shore Regional Jail, requesting information about the procedure for removing one’s public defender.
In a handwritten letter to “Whomever it Concerns,” Bundick wrote that the legal advice she has “been receiving is ineffective.” She went on to write, “I don’t find the legal advice I am given to be in my best interests.”
The undated letter was sent to Accomack County Circuit Court, postmarked July 25.
Bundick is scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 4 for her role in a fire set on March 3, 2013. In July, a jury recommended she serve 3.5 years in prison and pay a $10,000 fine for that fire.
