Is there a dead line on when you have to file a "pettion for certiorari"? Does the reference you gave me give me clear instructions on what to do?
Yes, my brother was found guilty of such flimsy evidence. His public attorney was shocked. My brother did not take the deal offered to him by the District Attorney because the public attorney assured him that with such circumstantial evidence he shouldn't be convicted, but he was. The public defender believes the jury based their decision on emotions not facts or real evidence, because there wasn't any. That is why I need to try to help him, becaus it was not a fair trial, it was a kangaroo court. .
The Supreme Court denied his petition for review. It looks like the decision was made 12/15/2010. The remitter was issued 11/29. Do I need an attorney to file the certiorari?
It looks like the apppellate attorney mentioned that these ar often not granted.
