Corrected Illegal Sentence Years Taken Off Post Release Supervision
February 9, 2019
The Scenario: An Iranian businesswoman, who was previously convicted of human trafficking offenses, received an illegal 10-year term of supervised release. Because our client attempted to remediate the illegal sentence long before retaining us, many avenues to correct the illegal sentence were foreclosed.
The Results: Using our experience with U.S. Probation and the U.S. Attorney’s Office, we found a way to correct our client’s illegal term of supervised release. We persuaded the U.S. Attorney’s office to make the application on our client’s behalf. The judge reduced our client’s term of supervised release by seven years, so that she only has two years of supervision remaining.
