My friend was sentenced to 10 years as a first time offender for "intent to defraud a retailer", a charge that carries a 1 to 10 year sentence. He took that as a plea deal out of desperation after being one year in county jail and having 2 bad experiences with lawyers. He was sentenced in Douglas County. Does he have any way to get that sentence reduced ? Changed into probation ? Do judges reconsider their sentences ? What is the process ? I would appreciate any help. He is an older person who got tempted into crime and 3 years 3 months before parole consideration seems so excessive.
