Dear lawyers, I need to hire a California lawyer that is superior!
If you want to remove "LWOP" for a crime you committed as young in 20:ies (23 years ago) (robbery
with accident), or have a chance to leave prison in California, what would be a good option, kindly see below. The person in question is a good person that study, is a part of a group that sees kids to prevent them from committing crimes, wants to take his bachelors and make a difference in society. He is also writing on a book to lead young people away from crime. He is not a person that should be incarcerated.
He has a job and a home waiting if he can be released.
1) Is it better to get a pardon attorney and apply for clemency
2) Is it better to appeal and try to overturn the conviction: Cooper vs Lafler March 2012 (wrong advise by lawyer that also happened in this case, 15 to life was offered in this case but lawyer said he would be free but got LWOP instead).
3) Is it better to appeal with the new discussion on LWOP for people convicted young coming up, people up to 18, but even though this person was over 20 there is a research at Harvard in 2012 saying about the brain of a 18-25 year old that have been abused as young (as this person has).
4) Is a compact agreement to Swedish prison an option? Swedish Justice
Department says that USA signed a treaty in 2005 I think it was, but that it is hard for a US citizen to tranfer FROM the States even if it is granted from the Swedish side. (I am Swedish)
Waiting for you answer!
