Client's Sentence Reduced by 15 years


Appellate Advocates client Jesus Tendilla-Fuentes was convicted of first-degree manslaughter and attempted first-degree assault.  The court sentenced him to consecutive terms of 25 years for first-degree manslaughter and 15 years for attempted first-degree assault.  The Appellate Division, Second Department, held that this was excessive and ordered the two sentences to be run concurrently.
