Default Granted post conviction relief / Will his time be cut?

Hey everyone,
I have a question about post conviction relief. A friend of mine was granted this last week. He appealed it because he felt like he had a crappy appointed lawyer. I was wondering if he does have a good lawyer would he have a good chance of his time being cut down? He plead guilty for first degree burglary but now him and his lawyer want that dropped to attempted burglary and his time cut down.

Additional information:

He had an accomplice but he only got 10 years my friend got 27 years and they did the same thing... Something went wrong there.

Any information that is given will be greatly appreciated. What my friend did was wrong hands down but the time does not fit the crime.

Because your questions are more legal than "general," I've moved your thread to the Prison Legal Help forum

If a sentence or conviction is set aside through the appellate process, then the case generally goes back to the point in time where the Court said they were entitled to a 'do over.' In some cases, people can get less time and there are some who wind up with more.
