I was excessively sentenced to a seven (7) year prison term and five (5) years of Post Release Supervision as a result of a miscalculation of felony convictions that are to be taken into consideration prior to sentencing.
I have already completed the prison term, and am approximately two (2) years into the five (5) years of Post Release Supervision. As a result of an appeal the prison term has been reduced, and I believe this shall apply to the Post Release Supervision sentence.
