Bone McAllester Norton attorney Alex Little made an appearance on Good Morning America today, providing legal insight into a case involving a rapist in Montana who was released from prison after only 30 days and is set to be released today. The judge who handed down the sentence has since apologized for comments he made during the trial and tried to schedule a hearing to determine whether it can be increased by two years before the state supreme court stopped him.
“You don’t get do-overs in this way if you’re a judge,” Alex told reporter Anthony Castellano. The local district attorney has appealed the lenient sentence. “If the judgment at the end of that process is that he needs to serve more time, he’ll have to serve more time.”
