Sometimes the sentence that a Defendant receives greatly differs from what they expected. In the event that you or a loved one is disappointed, shocked, or simply just unaccepting of the Court’s sentence following the conclusion of a criminal case, a motion to the Court to reconsider the sentence is available. A Post-Sentence Motion to the sentencing court must be filed within ten (10) days of sentencing so time is of the essence!
Our Attorneys can meet with you or your loved one, review the issues of your particular case, and suggest a strategy to help persuade the Court to modify their sentence into an acceptable outcome. This process is very labor intensive and requires the filing of a brief to the Court which not only spells out potential sentencing errors, but also refers to case and client specific facts which may not have been considered.
If you wish to either contest or request the modification of a sentence, you must act now. Call Miller Lyden, P.C. at 1-717-393-8000 now and get started on an appeal today.
