Is A ‘Motion To Correct Illegal Sentence’ An Option For You?

Laws are constantly changing. As legislators update our statutes, sentences that were passed on criminal defendants also change. When new laws conflict with the sentence that an individual is serving, a “Motion to Correct Illegal Sentence” may be filed.

This motion notifies the court that a review of the individual’s sentence is warranted. The judge may grant the individual a hearing, or the judge may adjust the sentence so that it comes into compliance with new laws.

Success at these hearings requires skillful research, insightful legal arguments, and a dedicated team. At Longman Jakuback, we have a formidable record with these motions, and we are prepared to assist you if you believe you are being held on an illegal sentence.
