The attorneys also filed a request for transcripts from dozens of motions hearings dating back to 2017 as well as full transcripts from his trial.

Mark Redwine was convicted in July of second-degree murder and child abuse resulting in death following a weeks-long trial in connection with the 2012 disappearance and death of his son Dylan.

At his sentencing in October, the judge read a statement from Mark Redwine that appeared in a pre-sentencing document. In it, Redwine wrote he was "innocent of all charges." He also wrote, according to the judge, that there was a "miscarriage of justice" and it was a "fake conviction" and "sham trial."

Dylan was last seen alive the night of Nov. 18, 2012. He had been in Vallecito for a court-ordered visit with his father. Prosecutors said the two had a fraught relationship after the boy discovered lewd photos of Mark Redwine, and Dylan's mom and friends testified at trial that he was not looking forward to the visit with his father.

Mark Redwine reported his son missing on Nov. 19, 2012, after he returned home from work. A search of the surrounding area didn’t yield any results until June 2013, when a team found Dylan Redwine’s partial remains on Middle Mountain.
