MOTION FOR REDUCTION/MODIFICATION OF SENTENCE INSTRUCTIONS 1) All motions must be legibly handwritten or typewritten, and signed by the movant (defendant) under penalty of law. Include all grounds for relief and supporting facts. Explain to the Judge, in detail, the specific relief requested. Fill in all blanks completely. Motions with blank forms are unacceptable, and will be returned without further consideration. All correspondence must include the correct Case ID Number or the correct Criminal Action Numbers. These numbers are available on your status sheet, which may be obtained from the Department of Correction Records Department. Any requests for status sheets should be directed to the DOC Records department. The Prothonotary Office neither produces nor distributes status sheets. List all case ID numbers (or Criminal Action Nos.), the date movant was sentenced, the sentencing Judge and the specific request desired. These are crucial to the timely and efficient processing of any motion filed. Motions for reduction of sentence must be filed within 90 days of the movant=s sentencing date. A motion for reduction of sentence filed after 90 days must either state extraordinary circumstances that would entitle the movant to relief, or it must be filed by the Department of Correction, on behalf of the defendant, pursuant to 11 Del. C. '4217. Movant may attach photocopies of documents (as exhibits) to document the movant=s claims for relief. Do not submit original documents (other than your Motion); they will NOT be returned. Submit 1 original of the motion to the Prothonotary in the county the defendant was sentenced. DO NOT submit extra copies. Do not submit the motion directly to the judge. It will be returned without further consideration. Mail a copy of the motion to the Office of the Attorney General. Fill out the attached Certificate of Service completely and sign it, under penalty of perjury. Please do not request the Prothonotary Office to make copies or forward copies to the appropriate parties. Please do not mail the original and the Attorney General=s copy in the same envelope, as the Attorney General has a different address. It is the responsibility of the defendant to serve the Attorney General with a copy of the intended motion. The Prothonotary does not distribute copies to the parties involved, except for the assigned Judge. 2) 3) 4) 5) 6) 7) 8) Motion for Reduction/ Modification of Sentence Instructions Page Two American LegalNet, Inc. 9) Any motions not conforming to these instructions will be returned with a notation as to the deficiency.
