What can be done to get a lower sentence?

That question is far too complicated to answer in the forum. First, is the offer from the DA’s office or from the judge? If the DA is offering a plea to whatever with a recommendation of 8 years, perhaps the judge will give him less. But that is only one issue. Avvo is here to provide general information, but it is not intended to be a substitute for legal counsel. Your boyfriend definitely needs to retain an experienced criminal defense attorney.
Please note that answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship. Attorney Feraru has practiced for over two-decades dealing in many types of cases, including: personal injury, criminal, family and many other civil matters.
He needs an experienced criminal defense lawyer asap.
IF YOU FOUND THIS ANSWER "Helpful" or " The Best Answer" YOU CAN THANK ATTORNEY POWELL BY MARKING IT SO because Avvo awards the attorney points. MS. POWELL is donating her time and talent by answering questions to help those in need of legal information. This is NOT a consultation and in no way creates an attorney-client relationship. YOU SHOULD ALWAYS PERSONALLY CONSULT WITH AN ATTORNEY IN YOUR LOCAL AREA who has specific expertise in the area of law you are concerned about. Look up the avvo tab to find a local lawyer.
