    Your dad must have had a lawyer to assist him as this is a criminal case. If he couldn't afford one, he was entitled to assistance from a lawyer appointed by the state.

    If your dad's lawyer felt the judge was biased that lawyer should / would have filed a motion to either dismiss the case of get another judge to hear the case. And of course your dad's innocent. Most in jail claim the same, as we speak.

    If you are truly serious about helping your dad and you are truly convinced that justice was not served, appeal the sentence, if not done already and/or look for a (better?) lawyer.
