Legal Question

Asked on: 9/26/11, 2:14 pm

My nephew was charged with 1st Degree Burglary and 2nd Degree Robbery in 2009. He was one day shy of his 18th Birthday, no priors and the prosecutor went for the maximum of 30 years. During the trial our defense attorney was told to stop his relationship with a prosecuting attorney and my nephews court records show a "conflict of interest". Now, my nephew was arrested for suspicion of burglary and his probation has been revoked. Do we keep the same attorney since he is familiar with the case or do we hire a new attorney and can the first trial be reviewed and/or appealed?
