Is there a request or something I could ask for that would help in court with my mom being sick?

My brother is being charged with burglary (nonresidence) and he was already on probation so that put him back behind bars. His lawyer has said there is no evidence of the burglaryt that he is supposed to have commited. Our mother has been really sick with cancer and with no evidence, I was wanting to know if that was something that would be taken into consideration.

    Your mother's medical condition will play no role in the court's decision making the same way it played no role in your brother's decision making.

    It is possible that your mother's illness could be taken into consideration in having your brother released on either his own recognizance or on a small bond. However, this is something that you should be discussing with your brother's attorney, since he knows more about your brother's case and the evidence against him than anyone on this forum.

    It is good that you are seeking to help your brother. Your brother should turn to your his attorney with his questions and concerns and she/he will be happy to advise him. Your brother may seek a second opinion. If appropriate to your concerns, your brother, with court permission, typically may change attorneys.
