Jury convicts someone of manslaughter 2nd degree, but when the court clerk asks the jury if they are all in agreement he says "murder 2nd degree" and they all agree. No one notices the mistake, including the defendant and his attorney. Years later the mistake comes to light, but the courts deny the defendant's appeal to modify his sentence (he received 25 to life) which should have been 8-16 years. It is obvious a mistake was made which the transcript clearly reveals. any advice you could give would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
