A good, sensitive attorney in Mississippi...
- Is there such a thing????????!
I have written before about my friend in Mississippi, who has a
26-year-old son that is serving a 42-year sentence.
Her son, Steven (while under the influence of illegal substances),
was charged with two counts of unarmed burglary, two counts of
(aggravated) assault and one count of unarmed robbery, six years ago.
No one was hospitalized!
However, the "Honorable" Billy Joe Landrum of the Jones County Court
in Laurel, MS, gave Steven the equivalent of a death penalty!
He will be 61, when he is released. I cannot believe that he
received a "fair" sentence!!!

the family has almost given up hope. I have never dealt with her,
when she was so depressed!

system, but the only way to win this war is through one battle at a

the website that I put together for Steven. I hope that it helps:
Please e-mail me, directly, if you have information that can be
passed on to Steven's mom. I am grasping at straws and will
appreciate any of your help!!!
