A Defendant Gets 18 Years

I just recently finished working on a case where I was attempting to provide mitigating evidence for the defense. These are always tough cases, because I want to be helpful to the attorney who hires me, but I often don't find information that is going to be of much use. Sometimes, I actually gather data that ends up being potentially harmful to the defense's position. I hate having to tell defense attorneys that, after a lot of time and money spent, I have nothing for them. But, I do it anyway.

However, in the recent case I mentioned above, I did find information that I thought would offer mitigating evidence at a defendant's sentencing hearing. This was a 19 year-old who pleaded guilty to an assault charge and was facing 10-64 years in prison. His co-defendant received 24 years, but my client received a sentence of 18 years.

I can't be sure, but I think the evidence I found and was able to testify to at his sentencing hearing affected the judge's decision. I was basically able to confirm with psychological data much of what his family members had said about him at the sentencing hearing.

18 years is still a long time, but it felt good to be able to play a part in shortening the defendant's sentence. He definitely did something very bad, but his actions were in part due to some serious mental health issues beyond his control.
