A California state inmate was sentenced to two life terms for attempted murder with a lot of aggravations added. There was an appeal immediately following the conviction, which was overturned. I believe he did not receive proper counsel by his attorney and ended up getting excessive time given the circumstances surrounding the crime, which never came up at trial. There was also huge media coverage, therefore should have been tried in another county to disallow prejudice. In prison, can he file another appeal through a state appointed attorney (he is indigent) for inaffective counsel or mistrial? I believe there is sufficient evidence for such.
