Thank you for your response but I am afraid you missed my other part of that question. 22 years later I am afraid this is something that is too late to raise since it is not new information that has just been discovered. This testimony
and the attorney's actions in not questioning this were known at the time the first appeals were filed and as such the defendant cannot get continuous chances at appeal years later. The only way to appeal something like this 22 years after the fact is if there is NEW recently discovered evidence that was not reasonably discoverable during the trial or first appeal. This is nothing new and as such should have been raised on his original appeals I am sorry to say. This is a case that if you file this on appeal now would be dismissed without even much of an answer from the appeals court I am afraid.
