ENM Law News: Sentencing Issue Won on Appeal

| Sep 21, 2014 | Uncategorized |

Judges are supposed to follow statutory guidelines when imposing sentences for crimes. These guidelines are based on a defendant’s prior record score (PRS) and the offense gravity score (OGS) for the crime. In our recent case, the sentencing judge used the incorrect OGS for a conspiracy crime which led to that judge following improper sentencing guidelines. As a result, our client received an incorrect sentence. Our appellate attorneys filed an appeal to the Pennsylvania Superior Court asking that court to overturn the sentencing judge’s decision. The Pennsylvania Superior Court agreed with the arguments of our attorneys and sent the case back for resentencing.
