Who can my friend write to in order to file an appeal while in Kirkland Prison in South Carolina. Someone said he had 30 days to appeal and another said 10. Who would he write to and how would he word it. Will he have the same public defender or will they give him a new one.
His public defender has most likely filed the notice of intent to appeal, which must be filed with Court of Appeals within 10 days. A lawyer with the Appellate Division of the SC Commission on Indigent Defense will be assigned to his case once the trial transcript is received. Call them at 803-734-1330 and see if the appeal was forwarded to them.
