my friend jose was with his friend when they deceided to rob someone - but jose's friend killed the man he robbed, jose was in the car...iv been unable to get ALL the details of what happened AFTER that because it's been extremely difficult to get the transcripts from the trial or speak to jose-but i know altho jose helped hide the body, he later tried to save him...when not being influenced by his friend...the friend admitted in a signed statement that jose had nothing to do with his kill, but it was supressed at trial...jose's lawyers persuaded him to take a plea deal which resulted in both of them getting the same sentence. he was a minor at the time the crime occurred - he can't get anyone to reveiw his case...i live in tn...is there anything i can do to try to help him? - an appeal siting the withheld information? -....trial case # ***** - court of appeals number -xx-xxxxx-CR
