Can nunc pro tunc be used to correct a sentence for DWI?
Two DWI sentences running concurrent 1 1/3 - 4 and 1 2/3 - 5. The agreement was to run concurrent starting form the first day in prison. It took 10 months for the second charge to go through the court system and DOCC's added 10 months to the end of the sentence as the details were not spelled out in the minutes or put in any of the documents submitted. Just a box was checked saying concurrent.
Contact the attorney who handled the case at sentencing. Perhaps the court can correct the sentencing dockets.
