Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals has overturned a life sentence for O'Brien Hatfield Teal, P.A. client Pedro Rodriguez

March 12, 2014, the Eleventh Circuit vacated Mr. Rodriguez's life sentence and remanded the case back to the district court for resentencing. United States v. Pedro Rodriguez, 12-12257.
TAMPA, FL, March 18, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- We are pleased to announce the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals has overturned a life sentence for firm client Pedro Rodriguez. In an opinion released to the public on March 12, 2014, a panel of three judges on the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals agreed with our appellate brief and oral argument that Pedro Rodriguez's appointed lawyer, the government and the district court were all incorrect when they all agreed at sentencing that Mr. Rodriguez had two qualifying drug convictions that mandated a sentence of life in federal prison after he lost at trial. As a result, the Eleventh Circuit vacated Mr. Rodriguez's life sentence and remanded the case back to the district court for resentencing. United States v. Pedro Rodriguez, 12-12257.
