Criminal Defense Attorney
Your post is unclear as to what the status of the case is. If she has already been sentenced then she needs to retain a good appellate and post-conviction relief lawyer. If she is charged but the case is still pending then she needs to hire a good criminal defense attorney. Proceeding without counsel or with a less than qualified attorney can result in a terrible sentence and even worse loss of rights. She needs to consult privately with a competent criminal defense attorney asap. Good luck.
