Is this case still going on, or has your little brother already been convicted and is serving a sentence? Have you spoken to your brother's lawyer about this?

1) yes he been convicted
2)we already giving the lawyer my brother discovery and his registration of action
3)we are waiting for her to get back with use to let us know if she gonna take the case or not
4) attorney david lane and the innocent netwok orginization refer us to this lawyer in boulder
5) we went down to the. court in denver and got the 2 papers we needed ***** *****er ex public defender was in the prosces of taking this case back to court than she got elected to be a judge. A attorney in denver had gone up to talk to my brother about his case but than he got in a car accident and later died in hospital my brother told me and my aunt that inmates would read his discovery and told him he shouldnt be here in prison that they got the wrong guy and they were gonna help him but everytime he getting help they were being transfer for no reason but he never gave up hope and that he just gonna keep praying about it i have everything all the information his location there was nothing to convict my brother the judge use his authority to get to my brother and the jury fail to come back with the verdict he did not accept the jury verdict so the jury was force to come back with a verdict and it was what the judge wanted to hear and he was happy with the verdict
Lawyer: Zoey, JD, Attorney replied 10 months ago

If your brother was convicted after trial, then he needs to appeal his conviction. It seems as if you've had some bad luck getting that jump-started in that one lawyer was promoted and another died. But you have someone now that will be working for him, and that's exactly what's needed.

When a jury says it can't reach a verdict, judges urge juries to go back and work towards a verdict. They never accept that the jury is deadlocked at face value, the first time they say it. They typically read the jury a special charge called an Allen charge, after the US Supreme Court case that established the law in this area. It is perfectly proper for the judge to send a jury back for further deliberations after they claim to be deadlocked. If they are still deadlocked after having taken more time to deliberate, then the judge will order a mistrial. But more likely than not, they will come up with a verdict.

An Appeals court does not retry the facts of the case. What they do is they look for errors in the law that the judge applied or for the lack of due process.

Lawyer: Zoey, JD, Attorney replied 10 months ago

I can't tell you why the lawyer hasn't gotten back to you. Even if he feels your brother doesn't have a case as a courtesy he should call back. Maybe it's just that we're on the brink of a weekend. Try reaching him again after Monday and seeing if you can get an answer.

Lawyer: Zoey, JD, Attorney replied 10 months ago

Just make an appointment to come and consult with the lawyer and show him or her what you have. That's the easiest way to get a response from them.

As far as what the lawyer will need to see, if he needs to see more than what you have with you, you can get them for him later.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
