The Peoria Journal Star reported on our representation of a second federal case to wrap up this week. Their Article (Click) reports that our client received a sentence of 100 months. He faced a guideline score of 262 to 327 months, which means this sentence was a dramatic departure from the time that he expected to face. During sentencing we emphasized that such a sentence would essentially be a life sentence for a 23-year-old, leaving him with nothing to live for and no reason to rehabilitate - which is supposed to be a goal of federal sentencing. Over the course of an hour, we went to lengths to try and explain the background and reasons that got the young man in his predicament. We are very pleased that the judge heard our arguments and gave him a chance at life in his 30′s, instead of his 50′s.

This followed a case earlier in the week in which we concluded representation of a man accused in federal court of being a Zone 4 gang member. He had faced three counts involving Criminal Street Gang Membership, Conspiracy to Commit Violence in Furtherance of a Gang, and Conspiracy to Distribute Narcotics. After being in custody awaiting trial for 14 months, and following our arguments at sentencing, he was released for time served.

These are just a few of the cases we've handled recently in federal court. You may not see us advertising about this work, but we regularly appear in court on a number of federal defense matters. We have other ongoing cases currently involving meth manufacturing and white collar embezzlement of over 1 million dollars.
