View Full Version : how long does it take to get sentenced??

The offense happened in 2002 and in March we received the pre-sentencing packet. It happened in Saginaw MI, so does anyone know how long it's going to take for them to reach a verdict. He's already in prison here in TX, so he won't be appearing at the sentencing so we don't know what is going on. It's a joke trying to get a hold of his lawyer.

Heya. I know that no one has responded yet, but I just wanted to say that there really is no way of knowing, unfortunately. The lawyer should be able to give you an estimate and if he will not return your call, let him know that you DO know where you can make others aware of your concerns with his lack of performance. And you can always call the Bar association and they can usually guide you with who to talk to and/or complain to if he still won't return your calls.

Good luck!

You can try contacting the court and ask if there is a timeline for resolving cases. In Wayne County, MI there are some guidelines on the time.
