Brother in law is a registered non violent sex offender from when he was 19 having sex with a girl who lied about her age and was only 16 years . His wife they have been separated for some time now was trying anything to send him to jail. They shared the same phone for a couple weeks and she ended up downloading a few pictures off line that the court is calling "studio pictures" of underage girls then called state police and told them about the pictures and they raided their home. He is awaiting a grand jury trial for possession of child photography and his court appointed lawyer says there is nothing she can do for him. What can and should be done if anything.?
Hire an Attorney that can guide you all and present the arguments in court. Additionally, I'd stop posting information concerning the matter on public forums.
The answer submitted by the Attorney above is for Educational Purposes Only and is not Legal Advice. The attorney does not represent the poster and no attorney-client privilege has been created by answering the question. As always the Attorney suggest that the poster seeks out a qualified attorney in their geographical area to assist them in the matter.
The best thing you can do is hire a criminal defense attorney skilled in constitutional law.
He has the right to representation. Be wary that your brother in law may not be giving you all the information. At the end, he needs to either come up with the money to hire good representation (just because you pay an attorney, doesn't mean you are getting good representation) or ask the court for a new court-appointed attorney. If he does ask for a new attorney, he must be very specific in what the lawyer has not done for him. Just because a lawyer gives him bad news, doesn't mean the lawyer is not representing him... it may mean that the facts are overwhelmingly against him.

Your brother in law needs a qualified criminal defense lawyer. Also, it is important that the lawyer will understand the computer forensics aspects of defending your brother in law. All the best to him. Jon
