What is sentence modification?
Sentence modification is the legal process that allows individuals who have been sentenced for a criminal offense to seek changes to their sentences. It covers a variety of different sentences, including reducing jail time, altering the terms of probation, or mitigating monetary fines.
The goal of sentence modification is to address any injustices or circumstances that may have changed since the original sentencing.
