The attorney went for insanity defense; I told him it was the wrong way to go but he's the lawyer and I'm not, and what do I know anyway?
Then I told the lawyer to have the confession thrown out because the defendant who is from Portugal had a Brazilian interpreter and not someone who spoke his native language. The attorney said, the confession was actually going to help the case therefore it stays; in the end the confession was the very thing that convicted the defendant of second degree murder.
I have pleaded with his attorney that the victim in this case was a well known convicted pedophile in Portugal, he had a thing for young boys. He didn't pay attention to that either. Now this young man sits in prison and I have less than 16 days to find a fantastic appellate lawyer. HELP
