There is not a lot that can be done post-conviction. When an offender signs a plea deal, they are also signing away the right to an appeal. If he had any prior criminal history, this would have some bearing on the length of his sentence. The dollar amount of the crime and the length of the sentence seem excessive to us, too. But, if there are other circumstances that you (we) are not aware of there might be more to the story which would be the reason of the sentence being 18 months.
