How can I access evidence used in a past case that may be questionable? 1 Answers as of April 07, 2011My sister has been in prison for two years for drug distribution and she says that the tape they have of her says that she was unable to get the drugs for the undercover. I would like to listen to the tape and make an appeal. While she was in prison she got in a fight and had additional time put on her sentence. If she was innocent in the first place she would of never been in the situation to receive the other charge. What do you think my options are?

Your time for a typical appeal has likely expired. However, you may be able to allege an "Actual Innocence" Habeas Corpus case. Your sister should talk to her former attorney and to the public defender's office about that.
