My brother and fiance were charged and convicted of multiple counts of robbery stemming from an illegal poker game. There was a person that knows my brother and his girl and they told the police that they did it. They were subsequently arrested and have been locked up since. This was about a year and a half ago. There was no hard evidence just the testimony of a person. We had the public defender who did nothing to assist my brother in the case. Ultimately his lawyer, her lawyer and the judged coaxed them to take an Alford Plea 5 minutes before the trial was to begin. They agreed reluctantly and were offered an 8-12.At sentencing they received 18 and 20 respectively.Families are distraught as she has 4 young children under the age of 15. Neither has been in trouble before. What can we do?
