All evidence that was presented during trial can be brought

All evidence that was presented during trial can be brought up during Sentencing, correct ? Notes of Testimony, medical records, etc. For example, if your lawyer missed the gentlemen's BAC in his medical records and they were indeed in there, that can be brought up? If clear lies and contradictions are found in ALL of the notes, from police reports, preliminary,and trial, they can also be brought up? I'm certain, because other lawyers have told me that if this information was brought up during trial, I would have never been convicted. But my lawyer is trying to tell me that notes and their lack of credibility because of their lies can not be used during sentencing. I believe he is just trying to save face.
