Plea Negotiations: Probation. Our client hired our firm within hours of arrest and attorney Mr. Bower successfully negotiated with the federal prosecutor to file reduced charges, which removed the 10-year mandatory federal prison sentence and gave the federal judge the authority to sentence our client to probation.
Sentencing Advocacy: 6 months in work camp. Our client originally faced 6 years of consecutive mandatory minimum prison sentences. Based upon our thorough negotiations, the Government agreed to dismiss the counts of the indictment that required consecutive prison sentences. After a contested sentencing that involved two days of evidentiary hearings, the Court agreed with attorney Mr.Bower and reduced the loss value from $600,000+ claimed by the Government to nearly $100,000, granted our downward variance, and imposed a six month work camp sentence.
