A BLOG from our #ABKLaw Partner Michael Jaccarino:
Our client was indicted for murder and was facing a minimum of 25 years in prison and a maximum of life. After several months, we convinced the judge that the murder charges were insufficient and they were dismissed, resulting in the client being eligible for an incredibly reduced sentence, and an opportunity to participate in a impactful program when he is released.
“A drunk driver who admitted to crashing his car and leaving his friend to die in the burning vehicle may use the experience to teach a lesson to youngsters.
His prosecutors are now recommending that he participate in Choices and Consequences, a drug and alcohol awareness program that may be assigned through the Department of Probation (DOP).
If DOP agrees to the recommended post-release supervised program for Ahmad, he would share his story with youth ages 12 to 18 who have gotten into alcohol- or drug-related trouble, according to the state’s Unified Court System.
“My client hopes to make a difference so that something like this will never happen again with someone else,” said Admad’s defense attorney, MICHAEL JACCARINO of the firm Aidala, Bertuna & Kamins.” “
