Vehicular Homicide

Mary Catherine Bonner

Case Conclusion Date:January 22, 2013

Practice Area:Appeals

Outcome:awaiting ruling

Description:After plea the gentleman received a long sentence and Ms. Bonner was called in to do the appeal. Since she felt that the appeal was weak because the standard was "abuse of discretion," she raised other, substantial issues, including sentencing discretion and the applicability of guidelines; and when it was determined that the judge had been a prosecutor at a time when the case was filed, a motion for recusal was filed.
