Facing the Consequences of a Conviction in Sarasota, FL, Federal Court
Sentencing in a federal criminal case is not as straightforward as it is in many other cases. The Judge does have plenty of discretion when it comes to taking the circumstances of your arrest and facts of your case into account. However, there are also federal Sentencing Guidelines, mandatory minimum sentencing laws, and maximum penalties in place they must consider.
While federal Sentencing Guidelines are only advisory in nature, they do provide a useful framework and a relatively simple option for helping the Judge consider a sentence based on:
- The nature and severity of the offense; and
- The offender’s prior convictions
Because any violation of federal law could lead to a federal indictment, the potential consequences of a conviction vary widely. You could owe fines, or you may spend decades behind bars in federal prison if convicted.
The criminal defense attorneys from Goldman Wetzel can handle your case for you, from the very beginning. Call us today and let us go to work on your case. We will be there for you when you face a judge in a federal courtroom, if this becomes necessary.
