SORA Court Grants Downward Departure to Level 2
Our client pled guilty in 2004 to a number of sex offenses and was sentenced to an aggregate prison term of 13 to 39 years in prison. After 18 years, he was granted parole. The Board of Examiners of Sex Offenders recommended that he be adjudicated a Level 3, the highest designation, which the prosecution also sought. Our request for a downward departure to Level 2 was granted by the court, in light of the client’s clear rehabilitation and the availability of stable housing for those adjudicated a Level 2.
