My brother has been locked up since 1992 and was given 104 years, He has had good behavior for awhile but was told he not come up for parole or come up on the map program because he has so much time which is too much time any way especially since no one was killed. his time is set up where he has to serve each sentence instead of it all being ran together.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I basic;y want to know how can he get his time ran concurrent. I bet if you looked him up and looked up his case you would see how wrong it is.
Lawyer: Law Educator, Esq., Attorney replied 8 months ago

Thank you for your reply.

The only hope your brother has here is filing a motion for post conviction relief, which is where he would have to argue his sentence was too severe based on the crime and present evidence in the motion supporting his argument and he can ask the court to reduce his sentence and to also run sentencing concurrently in that motion. This is solely at the court's discretion. If the court denies the motion, he can file an appeal to the appeals court to argue the sentence is too harsh.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
