A U.S. Federal Judge Could Hand Down a Stringent Sentence in Your Palm Harbor Federal Criminal Case
If the U.S. court convicts you of a crime, you could face significant penalties including incarceration in federal prison. Federal judges must consider several things when deciding how to sentence an offender. First, they must consider the mandatory minimum and maximum penalties allowed by law for the offense. Then, many consider what the Federal Sentencing Guidelines say about:
- The nature and severity of the offense; and
- Any prior convictions
These guidelines are only advisory, but many judges use them as a starting point before considering any mitigating or aggravating factors that may affect the sentence. Depending on what they convict you of any other facts of your case, you could receive:
- Time in a federal prison
- Fines and court costs
- Community service
Because the potential penalties you face as a result of a conviction are serious, you will want to do anything you can to avoid this. At Goldman Wetzel, we can challenge the allegations you face and work toward a more favorable outcome in your case.
