My brother just done 2 years out of a 3 year sentence for theft of someone's firearms (the charge was NOT burglary of a habitation). He got out on parole and within 6 months he revoked his parole by ceasing to show up. Two girls say he broke in their next door neighbors house and stole a t.v. When the cops picked him up he had less than 1 gram of heroin. One of the girls has moved and is not been found and the other one has assaulted a police officer since the event. Their statements might not match up. His case has been reset going on 7 months. He goes to trial in 3 months. They offered him 8 years. His court appointed attorney is not arguing for him and my brother said he isn't doing anything. Will hiring a lawyer help?
