A 19 y/o male was recently found guilty on 5 felony counts.

Hello, a 19 y/o male was recently found guilty on 5 felony counts. Sentencing is set for March 10 in Indiana. The current lawyer is not interested in appealing the verdict. The family is unable to pay another lawyer. Are there pro bono criminal appeal lawyers or would this family need to go with a public defender for the appeal process? Also can you list reasons as to why a key witness would be allowed to offer a video testimony only? Reason given by the state was that because his girlfriend is expecting. This does not seem to be a valid reason when the testimony of this person could make a difference in someone being released or spending the rest of the life in prison.JA: What state is this in? And can you tell me a little more about the charge?Customer: Indiana- 35-42-1-1(1) murder, 35-42-1-1(2) murder, 35-42-5-1 (2)/F2 Robbery resulting in serious bodily injury, Robbery by putting someone in fear and r,35-47-2-1/F5: Felon carrying handgunJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: in terms of the appeal?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Yes, also how a known accomplice can testify for the state and possibly have all charges against her dropped

I received a letter in the mail from the City Attorney

Hello. I received a letter in the mail from the City Attorney stating that a warrant had been issues for my arrest on the charges of shoplifting. It provides me a date to turn into the police department by the 11th. I had been contacted by a detective at the end of December over an incident but they stated that I was not the responsible party as I was not the one to remove the items from the store, someone else was pushing the cart. I was out of town and could not go in to speak to detective, a month's worth of phone tag, and now this letter.JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when was the warrant issued?Customer: This is in Arkansas. And the letter is dated from the 3rd, so I am assuming it is from then.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I have not received any police report, nor have I filed anything.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I believe that covers it.
