'Miller' resentencing

Members of the Orange-Osceola Public Defenders Office worked for three years to help Frederick Bradley who was only a teenager when he was sentenced to life in prison without parole for first-degree murder.
The incident occurred 18 years ago.

In late October, the public defenders succeeded in getting Bradley’s sentence changed to 23 years. He is now set for release in 2017.

The lawyers pursued and secured Bradley’s re-sentencing under the U.S. Supreme Court Miller v. Alabama ruling that mandatory life sentences without parole are unconstitutional for juvenile offenders.
