Megan

Judge sentenced client to 6 to 12 months in jail without considering individualized sentencing factors. The court’s sentence was objected to on the grounds that it violated the sentencing code and an appeal was taken. The client was granted a bail pending appeal. In a published opinion, the Superior Court reversed the lower court and vacated the client’s sentence finding that it was not an individualized sentence. Upon resentencing, the client received probation. The case is Commonwealth v. Luketic, 162 A.3d 1149.
