My husband is incarcerated and is eligible to seek a sentence reduction in 2018 and im trying to do some research. Where can i get some information on how this process works or finding an attorney that specializes in this? What information can I get about Clemency hearings as well? Thank You for any info you can help with.
Your question does not tell us whether your husband's sentence is from a State conviction or a Federal conviction. The process is very different for both. Many appellate attorneys also handle clemency or commutation or pardon petitions. I will change this practice area to Appeals. Best of luck.
While I have 21 years of legal experience, this answer is for discussion purposes only, and does not establish an attorney-client relationship.
