Consequences of a Federal Crimes Conviction in Pinellas County, FL
If they convict you of a federal crime, you will face serious penalties that could include time behind bars in federal prison. Before handing down a sentence in a federal case, the Judge must consult the Sentencing Guidelines and consider the recommended range. However, they can use their discretion to impose consequences outside of the range recommended.
The Sentencing Guidelines consider:
- The nature and severity of the offense; and
- The offender’s prior convictions
In addition to the recommended range for a prison sentence and/or fine outlined in the Sentencing Guidelines, the Judge must also consider any mandatory minimums approved by Congress for the crime and any maximum sentence allowed by law. This often leaves the Judge with a lot of leeways to set a sentence that they feel truly matches the severity of the offense.
Federal charges often come with significant consequences. This is not something you want to try to handle on your own. Especially because a good impression on the Judge may dramatically reduce your time behind bars. We will represent you in federal court, fighting for a more favorable outcome in your case.
