i was tried and convicted of trafficking in illegal drugs oxycodone 25 pills one pill was tested it was positive for oxycodone i sold them to the police in january of 2013 they did not arrest me until december 2014 the law was changed by legistrators in july of 2014 that oxycodone had been removed from the provision of trafficking in illegal drugs and a new law was created traffing in oxycodone can i be convicted under the old law that was no longer in effect? also the chemist said the weght was 13.15grams she weighed the pills on a balance scale the supreme court said that the way you weigh pills in a trafficking case is to weigh one pill, add the drug and buffer together then multiply it by the number of pills in order to get thd weight of trafficking after being detained by d.o.c. for a sentenced of 52.2months i filed a 3.850 motion in may2017 i have no response from the courts in 8months
Maybe you should stop playing lawyer and hire one?
Just a suggestion.
Appeals have strict time limits and precise filing requirements and if you blow them then it's on you and there's no recourse.
There is no internet class on "How to File a Successful Appeal 101", and even if there were then consider this: I can read Grey's anatomy but that does not make me a surgeon, and your law school education and license was worth precisely what you paid for it... nothing.
There is a solid reason for Abe Lincoln's age old quote that "he who represents himself has a fool for a client". Please do not be that fool. My advise is firm: Hire a lawyer.
Wishing you luck and hoping that I have been helpful in answering your question.
