CAL in the Courts

Client's Sentence Reduced by 20 Years

4.25.17

On April 25, 2017, the Appellate Division, First Department, ordered that CAL client C.F.’s sentence be reduced by 20 years. Originally sentenced to consecutive terms of 25-life and 20-life for separate robberies, C.F. asked the court to order the sentences to run concurrently in the interest of justice. The court agreed, reducing the sentence from an aggregate term of 45-life to one of 25-life. It also dismissed as an inclusory, concurrent count a third-degree robbery conviction. Our client was represented by Kate Skolnick.
