When addressing the judge during your sentencing for white collar fraud, it’s crucial to approach the situation with sincerity, remorse, and respect for the court. While every case is unique, here are some general guidelines on what you may want to consider saying:

1. Accept Responsibility: Express your acknowledgment of the wrongdoing and accept full responsibility for your actions. Show genuine remorse for the harm caused to others and any damage to their trust or financial well-being.

The Pre Sentence Report and Interview Why are they both so important

The Pre-Sentence Report plays a crucial role in federal cases as it provides valuable information to the judge during the sentencing phase. Here are some reasons why the PSR is considered important:

1. Sentencing Guidelines: The PSR assists the judge in determining the appropriate sentence within the framework of the United States’ Sentencing Guidelines. The PSR includes a calculation of the defendant’s offense level and criminal history, which are key factors in determining the recommended sentencing range. The judge relies on this information to ensure consistency and fairness in sentencing decisions.

How Should Trump and his Co-Defendants be Preparing for the Inevitable?

When facing federal white-collar criminal charges, obtaining the best possible outcome at sentencing often requires a combination of legal strategy, evidence presentation, and personal advocacy.

This combination is especially important given the complexity of the American justice system. As I discussed last week in my post about the U.S. Sentencing Commission’s update to Amendment 821 which allows for the reduction in sentences for currently incarcerated individuals, rules and regulations can change quickly and without notice.

A Lawyer, a 3 Million Dollar Charge and a 45 day Sentence; How can Non- Profit and Philanthropy Help

I recently had a client, a former lawyer, who was sentenced in S. Florida. The government wanted a sentence of 36-42 months. During the sentencing, the judge noted the defendants substantial non-profit work with his charity of choice, in this case, The Make a Wish Foundation. The judge made a comment how important this work was in determining the sentence. He gave the former attorney a 45 day sentence.

Engaging in non-profit work and philanthropy can demonstrate to the judge that you are making amends for your actions and contributing positively to society. This work can potentially be considered during the sentencing phase of your case for a white-collar crime.

The Trump Cases: What are the Advantages of Cooperation?

What is the difference between a 5K1 and a Rule 35 and How Can either Help to Reduce a Federal Sentence for a White Collar Crime?
Cooperating with federal authorities in a criminal matter can be a difficult decision, but it can offer several potential advantages including, but not limited to:

Reduced Sentences
Charges Dropped or Reduced
More Favorable Plea Deals

Fruit of the Poison Tree: Protecting My Family’s Assets

If you’re facing charges for a white-collar crime or anticipate potentially being charged, protecting your assets and your family’s financial wellbeing is understandably a priority.

However, tread carefully: attempts to shield assets can, if done improperly, result in further criminal charges or adverse legal consequences.

It’s crucial to seek legal advice from both a criminal defense attorney, an asset protection attorney, and in some cases, a trusted financial advisor, to ensure that any steps taken are legal and effective

How to Protect Your Spouse and Loved One’s From Your Restitution and Fines

The second thing that came to my mind, and continued not only that day, but until I was release from my 60 month sentence after 21 months was, how will this affect my family? What will my charges to do my wife? Will she be liable for any restitution or fines that I might have incurred due to my charge? I had no one to ask and was consumed by the fear of her losing everything because of my stupidity and selfishness.

How we got our client a 33 month reduction in his sentence

On, August 24th, the United States Sentencing Commission approved, by a majority vote, allowed for delayed retroactive application of Amendment 821 relating to criminal history—meaning that certain currently incarcerated individuals could be eligible for reduced sentences made effective beginning on February 1, 2024.

But what is even more important is many judges are currently reducing sentences on eligible defendants well in advance of the February 1st date. Below you will find an actual reduction done for one of our clients currently in custody, last week.

Preparing the Best Release Plan

Preparing a release plan from federal prison is one of the most important, yet consistently overlooked aspects of an inmate’s time incarcerated, and its easy to understand why. Emotions are running high; people are usually excited to be back “in the world” with their family and friends and are often eager to put their time in a federal prison behind them.
However, neglecting a thorough release plan can be seriously detrimental to your post-prison life, and the earlier you start, the more prepared your plan will be, likely leading to a better outcome.

How can your Probation/Supervised Release be Terminated Early?

In the U.S. federal system, a term of supervised release can, in certain circumstances, be terminated early. Here’s a breakdown of the process and considerations:

1. Statutory Requirements: According to 18 U.S.C. § 3583(e)(1), after an individual has served at least one year of supervised release, the court may terminate the term of supervised release and discharge the individual if it is satisfied that such action is warranted by the conduct of the defendant and the interests of justice.

Released From Prison to Home Confinement, the Halfway House or Probation

Being released from federal prison into the halfway house, home confinement or directly to probation, (which in the federal system is usually referred to as “supervised release”) is both a happy, yet confusing time. A release has dozens of conditions, and an equal number of factors go into the terms and jurisdiction of your release and eventual term of supervised release.

How to Begin to Reduce Your Sentence Immediately Upon Your Surrender

The first thought all inmates have when entering prison is how they can spend the shortest amount of time behind bars and away from their loved ones as possible. And while there is very little that can be done to directly change the judge’s sentence, there are things that can be done once inside prison that can significantly speed up an inmate’s release date, but to take advantage of these policies, it is essential to quickly consult a knowledgeable professional.

The Difference Between a Decent Consultant and a Great Consultant: Empathy

Hiring a Federal Prison Consultant can complement the services provided by an attorney in several ways. While attorneys are trained in legal representation, a Federal Prison Consultant typically has expertise in the specific nuances of the federal prison system, often based on firsthand experience. Remember that even the best attorney has never been in prison. They rarely, if ever have any understanding of what occurs after sentencing. Nor is that their job.
