- Q. My brother was convicted of first degree murder in 2010, out of Osceola county Florida. His appeals were exhausted.
- A: Contact Florida postconviction attorneys who offer free initial consultations to find out what can be done at this point. Call around and find one you like.
- Q. I just received an order from the court saying i was untimely on my appeal for my 3.850 .The thing is, its still not 2yr
- A: From the question, it is impossible to answer: if you received an order from an appellate court saying the appeal of the denial of your Rule 3.850 motion was untimely, the notice of appeal likely wasn't filed within 30 days of the trial court order denying your Rule 3.850 motion. If, instead, you received an order from a trial court that your Rule 3.850 motion was untimely and it was filed within 2 years of the mandate issuing from your direct appeal, then the trial court may have made a mistake. You should contact competent Florida attorneys who practice in criminal appeals and postconviction work and ask for a free initial consultation.
- Q. Victim sent a notorized statement that my husband did not commit the crime after 21 years. He has a life sentence.
- A: This is, of course, a very difficult situation to be in, and it isn't a simple process. There are many many qualified licensed Florida attorneys who handle postconviction work for inmates and their families who will be happy to give you a free consultation - there is more information needed to be able to talk to you about how to attempt what you're trying to do. I recommend you call people who know what they're a doing and who give free initial consultations.
