Client Found Wrongfully Sentenced as a Second Violent Felony Offender

On December 13, 2018, the Appellate Division, First Department, found that CAL client D.T. was wrongfully sentenced as a second violent felony offender upon his conviction of second-degree murder. Because it was impossible to say whether the court’s misapprehension of the sentencing range affected the sentence it imposed, the appeals court remanded the case for resentencing. Kate Skolnick and Samuel Steinbock-Pratt represented D.T. on appeal.
