Thank you for explaining more fully what happened, M6476.So I was sentenced to 3-6 (2 consecutive 1 1/2 to 3). I served 30 months. Appeals court found to be harsh and excessive but within the guideline. Resentenced to 2 concurrent 1 1/2 to 3.
Because the original sentences on your felony charges were within the sentencing guidelines, I do not see that you have any legal recourse. You were not wrongfully charged or convicted.
If the shoplifting of sunglasses was from a single shoplifting incident, the felonies (probably) should have been combined and there (probably) should have been a single sentence rather than two consecutive sentences.
That said, even for those who are wrongfully convicted and imprisoned for crimes they did not commit and later released on new evidence, there are no real “do overs.” Time served is time lost and you build from there.
You can, however, speak to an attorney in your area to see what options might be available

And here is a link to New York’s compensation statute:
Again, however, you apparently were not wrongfully convicted.
