Burglary and Robbery Sentence Reduced

6/18/2014

Mr. Ojeda was convicted for first-degree burglary and first-degree robbery. He was only 15 years old at the time of the offenses. Even though he had no prior record, he was sentenced to the maximum juvenile offender sentence of 3 1/3 to 10 years of incarceration. 

The Appellate Division found this sentence excessive and reduced it to 2 to 6 years.

Dina Zloczower briefed and argued the case.
