A: There are too few details to really address this, however there are always ways to try to explore helping someone who has been convicted of a crime.

Again, with a full set of facts it would be far more likely that an attorney could give you an opinion on what opportunities exist to assist in helping your brother. You claim his innocence, so if there were facts to support this, that's obviously worth looking into.
