My brother signed a plea bargain for a max two year sentence for assault, and 2 counts of violation of a restraining order. My brothers attorney did NOT present all facts and pertinent details at the sentencing, and we believe a video shown had been "altered" by the plaintiffs side and NOBODY will give us this video that only the Judge could see during the sentencing hearing. If we hire a new attorney or write to the the Judge explaining what we believe has happened, as well as provide additional facts, can the Judge change/amend his sentencing (18 months instead of the 2 year plea bargain maximum)? Thank you so much...I don't know where else to turn, or if its even worth pursuing as he has already started his sentence last week. This is also a first offense for a 55 year old male.
