Sentence Modifications

Motion for Modification of Sentence

Gavel - motion to reduce sentence

When you are convicted of a crime it is typically the presiding judge that issues the sentencing following the jury’s judgment. However, many times sentencing can be unnecessarily harsh, biased, and/or be the product of faulty proceedings. When a sentencing modification is granted, a case’s penalties and/or punishment may be reduced.

If you believe your case qualifies for a modification of your sentencing it is important that you contact a knowledgeable and skilled attorney. At the Law Office of Michael Abram, our attorneys know the Delaware court system and only practice criminal defense law positioning us with the experience defending the future of those convicted with a crime.
