It depens on what the trust provides
You really need to review the trust with a trusts and estates lawyer to answer this question. Chances are, the fact that your brother is in prison is no bar to the distribution of his share of the trust.
Please note that if he was in a California prison or County Jail, you would have to provide notice to the Director of the California Victim Compensation and Government Claims Board under Probate Code section 216.
