Q: FOLLOW-UP QUESTION TO: If my crime scores out to prison(58) is it mandatory i get sentenced to prison if its my first ever crime? Collier county, FL. My lawyer told me this as a reason she cant get me probation as a plea bargain…. Follow up to my previous post: iT wasnt 58 months im sorry. I meant to show a score of 58 as i was charged and sentenced to 24 months for burgary of an unoccupied dwelling. As i said i had no priors or points before this. The evidence of this crime against me wa nil. The didnt meet a single element of the crime of burglary. I was frced to fight this with court appointed attorneys 6 in all over a period of 3 yrs before the final attorney talked me out of a motion to supress illegally obtained text messages and telling me she couldnt get me any less than 24 months because ” in the state of florida if ur score is above 44 points its mandatory u do prison time therefore probation was not an option. So she gave me 2 days to decide to risk trial and of course holding a possible 15 yrs over my head should i lose, or 2 yrs prison and 2 yr prob early term after 1. Was i jipped? And do i have any recourse against her for lying to me and failing me miserably? I am currently at the tail end of my prison portion anf in work release program and have probation to complete yet. For a first ever charge and conviction was i robbed and more important is what she did negligence?
