Legal Question

Asked on: 5/11/12, 12:24 pm

My friend who is in prison did not file for an appeal in the 2 year time frame, because his transcripts were sent to the prison,but they never gave them to him. The courts now say this is not a reason to grant a belated appeal, that he should have filed an appeal anyway, using his best recollection. If he would have done so and it was denied because he didn't have the info he needed to make a reasonable argument, would that have made a difference?
