Life sentence overturned

Recently the Ohio Supreme Court overturned a life sentence on Eric Long (a 17-year old at the time of the offense). Five years later, after several denied appeals, the Ohio Supreme Court determined the sentence did not adequately bring his age into consideration. The Court did hold the conviction, and determined the lower courts would determine resentencing. Lower courts of appeals found no need to revisit the sentencing, however the Supreme Court determined 5-2 the case must be resentenced.

The appeal process can be burdensome; however, with proper legal help even long held cases may be revisited. While an appeal is typically not a promise of a shorter sentence or reduced fines, appealing can be helpful for many reasons. If you or someone you know feels an appeal can help a legal situation call Hastie Law Offices at 614-488-2800.
