Q: question about finding help for friend in California

So I have a friend whom met someone on an app he pretended to be female, once he learned her name and city he found where she lived and went to her home and threatened her and her son, she did what she could to keep them both safe then once she felt she was safe as was her son she reported him to the his case manager (he had been arrested for this prior), later she was charged with multiple felonies for protecting herself and her son because of the things she was forced to do she has been incarcerated since the 26th of october.

I have tried calling around, asking various lawyers and have gotten no information.

I tried sending her money to atleast make her life bearable in jail for some reason this is an impossible feat, I have had 2 additional people try and have had 0 success.

I have tried asking lawyers where the "crimes" took place, I know her booking number, her subject number however none of it has helped
