I'm asking here for some help or advices regarding legal issues, which is a field I'm not familiar at all, plus I'm a foreigner so everything is very confusing to me.
I'm trying to help a pp who I've been writing for more than a year, we're really close and he's serving LWOP in California.
Now, I read his case and something didn't sound right to me as soon as I finished reading, he even told me that several evidences were not considered at trial, his public defender basically "screwed him up" so I suggested to find another lawyer and set up a strategy, unfortunately he is broke so he was there living life in prison hopeless, basically abandoned by his family, with an awful lawyer.
After talking about the fact that laws are changing, that if there's new evidence he could go to trial again and he was misrepresented he was having a lil bit of hope and so he asked me if I can google some pro bono lawyer or things like that, and I really need some help here to know where and what to Google in order to help him. What should I do in order to help him? My pp doesn't want money, just that I give him some contacts of people, organizations, lawyers, who could help him.
I've heard of the Innocence project but that's it, if anybody can help me figure things out it would be much appreciated. Thank you.
