New York Criminal Defense Lawyer, Peter E. Brill Helps Client in Resentencing Case Get Reduced Time in Prison
Kevin Pinero’s sentence for a drug-related murder he committed as a teenager was recently reduced by nearly half by the late Hon. William H. Pauley III of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, shortly before the respected judge’s untimely death.
New York, NY – Kevin Pinero belonged to a gang as a teen and committed acts of violence and distributed drugs. Gang rivalries led the then 19-year-old Pinero to shoot one man and kill a delivery driver. Pinero thought the delivery driver, William Shaw, was going to kill him. Shaw was a rival drug dealer.
Pinero felt justified at the time of the killing. As years passed, self-examination led him to a different conclusion. “Mr. Pinero realized even if he was correct about Mr. Shaw’s intention to kill him, there could have been another way to address the problem. Over the years, Mr. Pinero matured,” indicated criminal defense attorney Peter E. Brill of the Brill Legal Group. Mr. Pinero had become a model prisoner, working to ease the difficulties of prison staff and fellow inmates through work assignments in trusted positions he was given at the prison.
Pinero’s original sentence was 35 years, followed by five years of supervised release. The new sentence imposed on Mr. Pinero was 21 years, followed by five years of supervised release..
