How Do I Get My Federal Life Sentence Overturned?

We are pleased to announce the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals has overturned a life sentence for firm client Pedro Rodriguez. In an opinion released to the public on March 12, 2014, a panel of three judges agreed with our argument that Pedro Rodriguez's appointed lawyer, the government and the district court were all incorrect when they all agreed Mr. Rodriguez had two qualifying drug convictions that mandated a sentence of life in federal prison after he lost at trial. As a result, the Eleventh Circuit vacated Mr. Rodriguez's life sentence and remanded the case back to the district court for resentencing. United States v. Pedro Rodriguez
