He's been sentenced, will a lawyer make a difference in release date?
My fiancé was sentenced to six years on 2 aggravated assaults with a deadly weapon. June will be a year that he's been in and his EPD is June 25, 2014 and his maximum is June 25, 2017. Just wondering if I got him a lawyer would it get him home any earlier.
Nobody can really answer your question. Hiring a lawyer isn't like a magic bullet - the more you spend, the sooner he gets home. It takes a lawyer to look at the case and figure out if there are grounds for appeal or sentence modification. That means looking at the entire case, transcripts and all, and assessing whether there are any grounds for relief available.
