He already had a trial, and no, no jury
My son was 15yrs. at the time, court proceeding star on Dec.24,2013; on August 1rst, sentence was carrying on, end of the trial.
The defend lawyer suggested that not pursuit an appeal,because in this cases they just look for the perfomences and procedure of the court; and that is the part that confused me.....It's my son is innocent, why I can't appeal?
Appreciate your time and thank for answer my question,
Wish me luck, because I will pursuit this to the end.
