Is there any lawyer that will take on a 38 year old criminal case?

Fayetteville, NC |

Someone was set up for this crime and past lawyers won't do anything about it. There was no DNA and the so call evidence was lost. Haven't seen the parents and are passed now, also has missed out all the family gatherings. This one has done nothing wrong and is a model inmate working as a TA.

You may want to contact the Innocence Project - a number of law schools work directly with attorneys on cases with questions like this.

As suggested by other attorneys, your best bet would be to contact the Innocence Project. That organization has a whole staff of lawyers, law students, investigators and supporting assistants devoted to researching evidence to support exoneration of the wrongfully convicted. Try to give them a ring.
