Case Conclusion Date: 01.22.2013
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.
