Man convicted of attempted murder wants prison sentence reduced

An Upper Providence, Pennsylvania, man who attacked his wife and teenage daughter with a knife has filed paperwork requesting that the courts review his prison sentence. The courts sentenced him to between 15 and 34 years in prison followed by 10 years of probation supervision for attempted murder and aggravated assault. The paperwork claims he does not pose a threat to others. The man's attorney also expressed their view that the man is not a danger to the community. He elaborated that the man does not have a prior criminal history and previously demonstrated solid morals. The lawyer also explained that the crime was out of character for the normally responsible citizen and that the injuries the victim received were not life-threatening. The attorney opined that the sentence was overly punitive.
