BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Attorneys for a Nampa man released from prison last year after being sentenced to four consecutive life sentences for a Canyon County assault are working to ensure he gets a new trial.

The Idaho Press-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1PN3Fhw ) that John Wurdemann’s lawyers have filed documents in court responding to the Idaho attorney general’s request that the Supreme Court reverse the district court’s decision to grant him a new trial. Attorney Elisa Massoth is asking the state’s high court to uphold the decision.

Wurdemann was sentenced after being convicted of attempted murder, kidnapping and other charges in the 2000 assault on Linda Lebrane. But a judge ruled in July 2015 that Wurdemann had received inadequate legal representation at his 2002 trial and he was ordered a new trial.
