I have a situation here where my younger brother (Bruce) is

Good day, My Name is***** have a situation here where my younger brother (Bruce) is Assrested in the State of Kentucky for his green card has expired. Somehow, he was unable to renew it? for Felony? or money problem? I am not sure which one it is?? because, he was invovled in a crime he committed in the State of Florida at an early age for kiddnapping and rape. On his record as a Felony now. So, Bruce had made a terrible mistake at a very young age I believe he was 18 or 19 at the time and the victim invovled was 15 year old girl he meet online and picked her up from the state of Kentucky and drove her back down to Florida. They had arrested him, and took him to Kentucky where he had a trail there and served his time. That was about at least 12 years ago. Bruce, has change a lot ever since, working hard, restarting his life over again and hasn't done anything wrong druing that time period. Up, until this Monday is when they came and arrested him on this (GREEN Card expiration) Keeping him at the county Jail with no Bail (Felony record) and they said they will have a him shipped to Chicago for a trail within the next two weeks and to be deportted to Vietnam. What should, i do now? next? Go to Kentucky to find out? or wait until his Trail date in Chicago to show up? Will they deport him? We have came here to United States in 1985. I am also putting together a few letters from his freinds and workers (notarized) to bring it with me to the trail? should I get a Lawyer? We can't really have one? low Income issue or is there a third party help? or public defender? Please give me advise, what to do first and how to go about this. thank you Mike
