Thanks for using JustAnswer.com. It will be my pleasure to assist you.

Even though his old attorney isn't returning your telephone calls, you can contact another attorney who specializes in criminal law. Sometimes, an initial appointment in person or on the phone is free or at a minimal cost. You can discuss the specific facts of your children's father's case and decide how best to proceed.

It is entirely possible that a Motion for Time Cut can be filed with the judge who sentenced him. Given the extreme circumstances of his situation, it is possible that the judge may order his early release.

Hold on.....there's more.

Because his funds are limited, he (or you for him) may want to contact legal aid in Texas for free or low cost assistance in helping him file a motion. Below is a link to Texaslaw.org:

Again, there is a possibility that the judge who sentenced him may grant a Motion for Time Cut given his extraordinary and unfortunate circumstances. It is worth pursuing.
