Yes, after the denial of an appeal, it is still possible to file a motion to modify a sentence, though the specifics can vary depending on the jurisdiction and the particulars of the case. This motion asks the court to reconsider the length or terms of the original sentence.
Customer won civil trial in his statement of claim the 3 issues he filed suit for I have direct proof they are lies in the form of his own texts messages to me before suit was filed. Purgury is lying under oath. I did not pay court ordered money. On 9/10/23 deputy sherrifs came to my house... View More
If the customer won the civil trial, you are now precluded from contesting that judgment other than by means of an appeal. Presumably the text messages providing direct proof of the lies were offered into evidence by your attorney at that trial. If not, why not? They’re not newly discovered...View More
His major defense is kidnapping but he has served 12 yrs and his max out is in 2072! I don’t think he deserves that much time and to die in prison! Is there anything I can do to help him get his sentence reduced?

I would advise you to have a consultation with an attorney. This isn't a place where you can get information on complex issues regarding a case that has already been adjudicated. See a lawyer in person and I would take a copy of my file with me.
Whether or not the tape would be admissible would depend on why it's being offered. However, generally speaking, the fact that the person on the tape had been drinking would not in itself make it inadmissible.
I regret that your question did not contain enough information to formulate an answer. For example, what is the case about? You said you have filed your "arguments"--that still does not give me enough information. And can you appeal--still not enough information...
In and of itself, I don't see there being a problem with a juror being an old classmate of the judge. The primary consideration for a juror to be seated is whether or not he/she is able to be fair and impartial under the present circumstances. If the juror was an old classmate of the...View More
Aggravated Assault two counts and Aggravated Battery being the worst, since the victim was struck with a machete on the head and used their arm to block another blow rendering it useless in the same commission. Convicted on every injury towards the victim and sentences to consecutive 20 year terms... View More
If the convictions stemmed from one succinct criminal transaction and all against the same victim, then the aggravated assault convictions should have merged with the aggravated battery conviction for sentencing purposes. See Regent v. State, 299 Ga. 172, 787 S.E.2d 217 (Ga. 2016). However, note...View More
Need more facts to answer this question. The hearsay evidentiary rule excludes out of court statements that are offered to prove the truth of whatever it asserts. If the un-indicted accomplice is available to testify, then he/she can testify, to an extent and subject to many evidentiary objections,...View More
It all depends on why the resentencing was ordered. If it has to do with information in the PSR, such as guideline calculations, then the PSR will be revised accordingly, although the presentence investigation is not redone in its entirety.
First of all, I am not a GA attorney. That being said, if this was a criminal proceeding, you have 30 days from sentencing. Regardless, it's 30 calendar days not 30 business days for an appeal. You could still file a motion for new trial with trial court, however, that motion --generally--will...View More
