Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
If he has been convicted, then hiring an attorney might not do you any good. Moreover, if he has been convicted and did not appeal the conviction in a timely manner as there is no new evidence that has become available since his conviction which would cast doubt on the veracity of the conviction, then there is virtually nothing that can be done. At this juncture, the only reasonable thing that can be done is to wait on his parole eligibility and have letters written to the parole board by reputable people asking for his release.
While I know this is an extremely emotional thing for you as he is your son, it sounds as though it is in your financial best interests and your grand kid's best interest not to waste your money on an attorney that likely will not be able to get him out of jail on such severe charges. The only way that might work is if there is new and substantial evidence that casts considerable doubt on his guilt or innocence. If that is not available, then you really have no chance at all.
