My brother is serving a 20 year sentence in federal prison.

My brother is serving a 20 year sentence in federal prison. He has been in prison for more than 13 years. His ex-wife and step-daughter accused him of sexual molestation. My then 15 year-old niece accused three other men of the same thing and wrote a recantation letter admitting to lying about what my brother had supposedly done. I became a private investigator after this matter and have spent years digging into this case. I recently came across court documents of the child custody hearing where my niece admitted on the stand to lying about what my brother supposedly done. My brother was a former police officer and decorated veteran of Desert Storm & Desert Shield. His job with the police department was investigating people who had been accused of child molestation. During the investigation into the matter with my niece a booklet was found in his desk entitled The Pedophile Handbook. It was not how to be a pedophile, but how to investigate such matters. My brother received several like material when he attended a training conference in St. Louis, Missouri. Seventy-five days after he left his home where his wife and kids were living his wife turned over computers and discs she said belonged to my brother. The computer had a number of items the federal investigators deemed "indicative of child pornography." They were referring to a site called Sorry. I hit enter too soon. Petoland. ItJA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: 's where children play with a virtual puppy or kitten. My nieces and nephew played that on the home computer all the time. Anyway...the attorney I hired to help my brother (case in Kansas City, Missouri) informed me that I should convince my brother to take a plea because circumstantially things did not look good. By this time my brother had been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. I was made his guardian and did convince him to take a plea. I was told there is a 95% chance of a conviction and nothing more needs to be said than my nieces accusation. My brother's Parkinson's has worsened. The state of Missouri have granted him parole in March 2018, but the federal sentence was concurrent. I want to know what form I need to fill out to get the sentence changed given the new evidence I have found in the last nine months? Would it be Form 40 for Missouri? What form do I fill out for the Feds? I spent $345,000 on the last lawyer and all he offered was a plea. Thirteen years have passed. Has time run out on this matter?JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I had a lawyer submit paperwork for a pardon and/or commutation of sentence. Neither was granted.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No.

My husbands dad had a mini stroke a year ago, with that

My husbands dad had a mini stroke a year ago, with that scareing him he set up 3 joint accounts, one with each of his kids. Now two months ago he had a big type of stroke and now he is not able to think straight and his daughter had her self made Conservator (or some thing) to make his decisions for him. She has access to all of his accounts and has been draining my husbands account for ALL of his bills and also has written over a thousand dollars worth of checks to the brother and his girl friend even though the brother has his own account with his dad that he has access to.JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.Customer: MinnesotaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: We have not done anything, we don't think that she knows that we know anything. We are pretty sure that the dad set up the three accounts as close in money as possible, but my husband is afraid that when he confronts her she will just say that there isn't any money in their accounts , only in his so that will be her reason why she is draining his account.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Is their any way to stop her from draining his account, or make it where she has to show the other accounts and divide the bills three ways?
