Is there anything can be done to help him

Asked 12 months ago - Chicago, IL

a person was charged with AGG CRIM SEX ASSAULT and KIDNAPING, he didn't show up in his trial after he was released on BOND and left the US to another country. the jury found him guilty absentia in Aggravated Criminal Sexual Assault and Kidnapping and he was Sentenced for 25 ys and 7yrs. later he was arrested by the FBI, then he was charged with VIO BAIL BOND/CLASS X OFFENSE and sentenced for 5yrs for that.

he's currently in jail, is there anything can be done in this case to help him, like appeal or open the case again for new trial

Thanks

    Answered . Hire a very good criminal defense attorney. The facts are not encouraging. Stop discussing this case in public, whether online or with friends or family. The defendant is in very serious trouble.
