HOW do you appeal your case if a NEW LAW/STATUE  affects your verdict and your rights. my nephew has been sentenced & now incarcerated , we are trying to find help on how we can go forward to apply/present the new law to his case.

I believe it is civil. he is indigent & also, looking for a group that can help someone indigent and incarcerated (once incarcerated no  one wants to Help)

Assuming your nephew was represented by counsel at the time of his conviction and sentencing, you may want to start with his former attorney. He or she will be able to tell you if the new law affects your nephew’s conviction and if he has grounds for appeal. Unfortunately and understandably there are not a lot of attorneys willing or able to provide pro bono services. Ask his former attorney for direction in that regard. Your state bar association and your community may offer a lawyer referral service that will arrange for you to meet with an attorney at minimal cost to you. Google “pro bono criminal attorneys” in your location.  This site also offers a “Find a Lawyer” service that will allow you to browse through listings of attorneys, many of whom offer free consultations.
