29 July 2019

Alison Gurden recently appeared on behalf of a client in court in Florida. Her client was sentenced, when he was a youth, to Life without Parole. Alison was successful in persuading a Judge of the Supreme Court of the USA to grant him a new sentencing hearing. Alison argued a novel point, that the court should not take account of the client's prison record when re-sentencing him.
