He served 3 years in prison and had 4 years probation. In his second year of probation, he failed a drug test and violated. He was sentenced to 8 years and 7 months. This was October 4, 2011. Is there anything a lawyer can do to help reduce his sentence or anything?
Criminal Defense Attorney
Florida Criminal Rule 3.800 (c) provides that a court may modify or reduce a sentence after it has been imposed. This would be the 57th day. An attorney can file a motion requesting a reduction but he would need some evidence as to why it should be reduced, preferrably evidence that was not available at the time of the original imposition of this sentence. You should act ASAP if you intend to do anything.
