Myself and 3 of my kids are sick with a nasty cold.
There is no magic language necessary to write to a judge concerning modification of one's sentence - provided it is submitted within the applicable period of time for such matters, but I have reservations concerning success in obtaining the relief you seek, given the basis for your request and the practical timing by which a written letter would find its way to your sentencing judge and the problem you describe.
Mr. Eidelberg is licensed to practice law in Maryland and the District of Columbia. The preceding response is not legal advice, does not create an attorney/client relationship, is for educational purposes, and intended to impart general information about the subject inquiry. Consultation with a qualified attorney in the state from which the inquiry is generated is strongly recommended so that case specific legal guidance can be obtained.
First, you must copy the prosecutor on anything that goes to the court. Second, you should have the lawyer who represented you at sentencing make the request for you.
Information in the reply is provided as a public service. It is neither a comprehensive statement of the law nor legal advice, and no one should rely on it as such. If you have a legal problem or question, you should consult with an attorney, who can investigate the particular circumstances of your situation. Responding to a post does not constitute legal representation. I am not your lawyer, until we make an agreement and I receive my fee. Beware that posts and replies are not confidential. Anyone can read them.
Just send a letter to the attention of the judge at the address of the court you last appeared in . Attach a copy of any Doctors note you have or the request is likely to be denied
