    Worried Mother

     

    This is Brenda Newsome; her son Tyeric Lessley was involved in an accident in Minneapolis, MN.  He was a witness to the accident because he wasn't driving. Knowing that the police would be called he tried to leave the scene (he had an unregistered firearm) he is from Omaha, Ne; and was in town celebrating his fiance' birthday. He had went out with a relative to a club, after an incident at the club which they were no part of they got into a fender bender which lead to him shooting a guy. Unfortunately the gentleman did not survive.  This incident happened on March 17, 2008 and this woman's son has yet to go to trial.  He chose to not have a jury trial so that he could take his punishment and get on with his sentence.  His family is getting the run around on court date and the family already think that they have no case it was self-defense and with all the cancelled court dates we feel that the only reason they are procrastanating is because it is a situation where a black man killed a white man. How can she get some help to move this case along? We can't afford an attorney so he has a public pretender.
