Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Good evening, I am a criminal defense attorney and former Prosecutor for the State Attorney's Office, while we do not have an attorney-client relationship, I do believe I can assist you with this for educational purposes. I absolutely agree with you that it's definitely worth filing and taking a shot at; for your client it would have significant impact. I think you have a very strong case if you have copies of the plea colloquies or something of the sort, and any other possible evidence, such as transcripts from the court records on the dates he was sentenced. You wouldn't want something this big to get overlooked. I would recommend filing the motion.
