My son was facing several serious charges, he was held in 'county jail' for several months awaiting processing, the attorney never came to speak with him once. At all of the hearings, the att. was present and instructed my son on what to say/plead etc., without any knowledge of several inconsistensies that existed. My son said he 'did as he was told ' by the attorney because he kidn't know what else to do. He ended up being found guilty for several things that he was not guilty of, because he was despondent and knew he could not afford to get a private attorney. I was unaware of everything that was happening, as it is made next to impossible to communicate with inmates. I believe the attorney was negligent. Is possible for my son to appeal, and, can the att. be held liable for mis-condu?
