Legal Answers
Q. Is there a chance based on this case the amount of years could be reduced
A: How do you already know what sentence she will receive? If she agreed as part of her plea to a specific sentence, then she cannot challenge the length of that sentence on appeal. If she did not agree, then she can appeal to the higher court and ask them to reduce it, however, they can only reduce the short end of the sentencing range of the sentence given. The high end/maximum will remain as a potential deterrent from the offender misbehaving while in prison. If they behave, they will be released when the shorter end of the sentence arrives.
Q. Can a circuit court judge rule if his term is expired? I can't find anything anywhere on st. Joseph County Michigan.
A: There are ways to allow a judge to rule after his term expires. You can however certainly appeal the length of the sentence given as being excessive under the specific facts of your son's case.
Q. how long after I get sentenced do I have to appeal
A: 42 days to request appointed counsel. 56 days to file a claim of appeal following a trial. 6 months to file an application for leave to appeal following either a plea or a trial. An infinite amount of time (no time limit) to file a post conviction motion for relief back in the trial court if you missed your other appeal deadlines.
