Recent Testimony questions

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

In August of 2015, me and a friend used his credit to get me

In August of 2015, me and a friend used his credit to get me a laptop from Apple. We agreed that I would be paying monthly till the total of 1,200 was paid off. Well, on some months he didn't deposit the money that I would give him. And he also used the card for his own expenses, ex. bars, gas, and school things and he never paid back. Now he's threatening to take me to small claims court and telling me that I owe him one thousand dollars and threating to take back the laptop. How do I go about this? Can he take back something that was given to me almost two years ago? Even though I know for sure that I have been paying him?

Second opinion] my boyfriend beat me up pretty badly. he ran

Second opinion] my boyfriend beat me up pretty badly. he ran away before police arrived. There is witness testimony, charges were filed. On the website that shows the crime report, it says," Assault - OtherIR Number: SAPD17029259Crime: ASSAULT BODILY INJURY-MARRIED/COHABLocation Type: Date: 02/06/2017Time: 5:10 PMPublic Address: 60XX RITTIMAN PLAZAAccuracy: AddressI begged him to turn himself in, as this is not the first incident of him abusing me, but he has never been arrested or charged with anything in his life. He was scared he would go to jail, so he fled the state (Texas) and went to a 90 sober living residency program out of Colorado. He *also* said that his doctor and other mental healthcare professionals advised him to do so. What can I do here? How can I get justice as quickly as possible?

I was taken to the hospital for the withdrawal of blood,for

Good morning, I was taken to the hospital for the withdrawal of blood,for being accused of a d.u.i. I told the trooper i was deathly afraid of needles. This is what happened. The state trooper put his body weight on my back to restricted my breathing and at the same time was also bending my fingers back,hyperextending them. At the same time another state trooper was bending my toes back, hyperextending them.The only thing i was doing was twisting my hands and feet so they would not stick me with the needle.The nurse stuck me five times with no result.My breathing was so restricted and my fingers and toes were in so much pain that after about ten minutes of this i gave up. On the sixth time the nurse stuck me she left a bruise two and a half inches in diameter. I could not use my hand for two days and walked with a limp for a day after this happened. Is there anything i can do about what happened to me so that others will not be put through kind of torture.JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location. Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: TexasJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No
