Reducing A Sentence Under SB 1437

SB 1437 allows for the possibility of a reduced prison sentence for people who are currently in custody on murder convictions. This new bill makes the punishment more proportional to the defendant’s involvement in the crime.  As of January 2019, an inmate can petition for re-sentencing under SB 1437 so long as they meet certain criteria, such as:

  • They are not serving life-without-parole
  • They did not personally commit murder in the first degree
  • There was no personal intent to kill, and 
  • They were not the major participant in the murder, and did not act with reckless indifference to human life.

Because every case is different, filing a claim under SB 1437 is a complex process that requires a dedicated expert who cares. Our attorney specialists provide detailed research into our client’s case, and fight for early release by crafting thorough and persuasive motions.
