People v. S.C.

Our client was charged with an Aggravated DUI and was on probation for a recent DUI conviction at the time of the arrest. He was facing extended sentencing because he had 2 prior Class 2 Felony convictions. The sentencing range was 6-30 years because of his background. After lengthy negotiations Mr. LaScola secured an offer of 3 yrs IDOC (18 months actual) and the client already had 10 months of good time credit to apply to this sentence for the county jail time he accrued during the pendency of the case. He will serve approximately 8 months downstate and will be released on mandatory supervised release (f/k/a parole). What would have been a 6-8 year sentence was reduced to a 3-year sentence!!
