Virginia Soentgen's public denfender appellate counsel, Mr. Steven E. Burlein, informed Virginia and Paul Soentgen many times that because Honesdale Pa. was a small town, and because of politics, Mr. Burlein would not really be able to assist Virginia Soentgen on appeal, and the dastardly Mr. Burlein made good on his assessment of the situation. Burlein filed fraudulent Anders Briefs instead of filing proper slam dunk double jeopardy misconduct briefs in both court cases.
