Resentencing Ordered


The Appellate Division vacated Mr. Durant’s adjudication as a second violent felony offender and ordered resentencing. The Court held, in the interest of justice, that because Mr. Durant’s robbery conviction from North Carolina was not a felony in New York, that conviction should not have been used as a predicate for an enhanced sentence.

Paul Skip Laisure represented Mr. Durant.
