Attempted Murder Defendant’s Lawyer Questions Client’s Sentence Credit

On Nov. 17, an attempted murder defendant’s defense counsel raised concern over the amount of credit his client had received since being arrested and motioned for a sentence modification before Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Yvette M. Bryant.

On Sept. 24, 2021, Darrell Nue, 31, was convicted of two counts of first-degree attempted murder, two counts of conspiracy to commit first-degree murder, and accessory after the fact in connection to an incident on Feb. 17, 2020.

A verdict was not rendered on two counts of conspiracy to commit first-degree assault and two counts of first-degree assault. Nue was also charged with two counts of reckless endangerment, but those were merged with other counts.

Nue’s defense attorney Phillip Levin claimed that the Department of Corrections had not received any documentation regarding his client’s credit for time served since his arrest in April 2020. 

Judge Bryant clarified for the court that the defendant accumulated 763 days of credit since his arrest on April 16, 2020; therefore there were no grounds for modification of sentence. 

The judge reassured all parties that her clerk would make the necessary corrections and alert the Department of Corrections.
