He has been in the State prison Since March 3, 2016. What can be done or how can we get this cleared up. His atterny did nothing about it and when I contacted him he told me the he was no longer his representative. I did stand up in court to say something but was advised to have a seat or leave.

Answer: You may want to consult an appeals attorney if you believe your son was wrongfully convicted or improper evidence was considered during his sentencing. See A.R.S. § 13 Chapter 38 Article 18 for more information on appeals. (http://www.azleg.gov/arsDetail/?title=13)
