3553a Sentencing Factors.

Federal sentencing is almost always the biggest part of a criminal case. That’s when the judge decides what to do in a case. Does he send you to jail? If so, then for how long? Or does he give you probation?

But that raises an important question. How does a judge make that decision? Our video below will walk you through this process. It covers the following topics:

  1. What to expect in the interview with the Probation Officer;
  2. Your PSR or PSI report;
  3. Allocution, i.e., what to tell the judge before you are sentenced; and
  4. How to use the 3553a sentencing factors to ask for less jail time.

In sum, there is no silver bullet that will guarantee you will get a lower jail term. But there are things you can do to increase your chances of getting less time.

Federal Sentencing and You.
