Aggressive and Effective Appeals Attorneys
Orlando, Florida (PRWEB) December 09, 2015
Appeals Law Group announces today that Senior Partner Patrick Michael Megaro, Esq. will argue the appeal of Rene Lima-Marin in the Colorado Supreme Court on December 10, 2015, Case # 2015SA192.
According to the appellate briefs filed in this appeal, Rene Lima-Marin was incarcerated in 1998 at the age of 19 and served 10 years in prison for a robbery in which no one was injured. He was paroled in 2008 for good behavior, got married, had children, maintained employment, and purchased a home for his family, remained living in Colorado and coached youth soccer. He was discharged from parole in 2013 after successfully completing his supervision and had no further contact with the criminal justice system.
According to the appellate briefs filed in this appeal, in January 2014, he was arrested and reincarcerated when it was determined that a clerical error had resulted in him being released 90 years early. He was sent back to prison to serve out the remainder of a 90 year sentence.
As per its October 19, 2015 Order, the Colorado Supreme Court will hear oral arguments as to whether reincarcerating Rene Lima-Marin violates Double Jeopardy and Due Process of Law, and is Cruel and Unusual Punishment given his clear rehabilitation and status as a productive member of society.
Jasmine Chambers, Rene Lima-Marin's wife, started a petition on change.org for his release. As of this writing, change.org records over 281,000 supporters. https://www.change.org/p/john-w-suthers-release-rene-lima-marin
