This is a very tough area to get good representation. We do not refer lawyers (most are only experts at taking your money). People with a lot of money cannot seem to get results either, which makes it hard for us to help.

Lyncher is a state prison. He will do his time there and when his sentence is up, there is a high likelihood he will not be released into any county. We are guessing that he already has an ICE hold and will be unfortunately deported to his home country.
