My husband has been jailed for 5 years and is eligible for parole after 3 years. The accident he was involved in relating to the conviction and imprisonment happen in 2014. He was found guilty in Oct 2016 and sentenced Nov 2016. I feel he has been sentenced as if the accident happened yesterday if that makes sense. Now reflecting on it his whole trial was a shambles and his lawyer didn't do a good job at all. She just wasn't willing to push the boundaries. I'm wanting to know why the 2 1/2 years prior to sentencing wasn't taken into account? Also, is it only up to the judge for a pre sentencing report to be done? Can a lawyer push for this to happen? I would really love some feedback. Thank you in advance.
