Appeals & Post-Conviction Relief

SUCCESSFUL CASE EXAMPLES OF POST-CONVICTION RELIEF

Child Sex Abuse/PRP:
A foreign-national client was convicted of child rape. He lost his appeal. His friends retained me for a PRP. We challenged the court conducting jury selection in private instead of in open court. The Court of Appeals vacated the convictions. On remand, the client obtained credit for time served and was returned to his home country and family.

Child Sex Abuse/PRP:
A client had been convicted and had lost his appeal. I reviewed the record and found the Court of Appeals had violated its own procedures and the client's appeals lawyer had failed to raise major issues. The Court of Appeals reinstated my client's appeal, the State agreed the sentence was five years too long, but the Court of Appeals reversed and dismissed the conviction's completely for violation of speedy trial. The client was released from prison.

Child Sex Abuse/PRP/"Wenatchee Sex Ring":
As a result of various institutional abominations, many poor parents were falsely accused of sexually abusing their children and sent to prison. As a volunteer with The Innocence Project Northwest, we got eight counts of child rape and a sentence of 40 years
vacated. The client accepted a plea to one count and credit for time served. She was released. Her son, by then an adult and supposedly one of her "victims," returned to live with her in another state.
