Brooklyn, NY asked in Criminal Law, Appeals / Appellate Law, Civil Rights and Legal Malpractice for Virginia

Q: I’m just now finding out about this and all of this is completely wrong and untrue! What can I do?

I was not in attendance during the appeal as my lawyer told me that I wasn’t allowed to be and was notified by phone that the appeal was not honored. I’m sure where this information come from or why the police made such statements but they are completely false! I’m assuming they’re getting their Stallings mixed up but this false and absolutely defamation of character! Please help me. I’ll give the exact same statement today as I did at the time of.
