AD1 substantially reduces sentence, originally 13-26 years, to 3-6 years


BJ was convicted of 10 counts of criminal possession of a forged instrument and one count of tampering with physical evidence. He was sentenced to an aggregate term of 13-26 years. Considering the nature of the offenses and the Manhattan District Attorney’s consent to a reduction, the Appellate Division reduced BJ’s sentence to a concurrent minimum term, making BJ eligible for immediate release. Carola Beeney and Allison Kahl represented BJ on appeal.
