Greetings Atty. Libayan,

I am desperate to seek advice since my counsel doesn't reply to my messages or calls anymore. I had been charged Qualified Theft at RTC Antipolo which I have fought and battled for about 10 years. Life is so slow moving and I am a single mother who have to struggle to raise 3 kids. A point in my life came that I have been granted a visa through an organization to attend a seminar in Australia (pure luck). Then more opportunities arose which made me stayed a bit more. Within the period I am in Australia, I kept my contact to my counsel pay necessary fees when required (although I am not working, I struggle hard to find the money to pay costs everytime) and at some point he never replied to me anymore. It was April 2014 when I last messaged him and told him whatever happens even if the immigration hasn't decide on my status here yet, UUWE AKO kapag ipinatawag ako ng korte. After half a year or so, nag message po sya na may harsh decision na ang korte which convicted me for 15 years.

TECHNICALITIES (I'm on a bail) Pero I sent someone to tell the judge that I'm in Australia for a seminar.
for the past 10 years of the said trial, hindi pa po nakita ang ebidensya ko. I am willing to battle the case attorney hirap na hirap na po ako dito sa Australia gusto ko ng makita mga anak ko. I have good evidences, new witness (star witness) and the amount charged to me is only 138,000Php. Their evidences and witness proved nothing at all.

If you can tell me please Attorney, that there is still a way, I would like to believe there is...as I am innocent...just didn't have a good lawyer (which the judge mentioned himself), I want to have this case get done and over with, for justice sake as well as liberty.

My kindest wishes,
