You need to know that the numbers count. An increase of as little as $1 in alleged damages could add months to your federal prison sentence.
At the Roberts Law Group, PLLC, we believe in sharing knowledge with you. With that belief in mind, we have released a white paper that provides an overview of the federal sentencing guidelines and how they apply in fraud cases.
Judges rarely depart from these guidelines, even though they are advisory only. You should be aware that judges will examine several different factors to arrive at the mandatory minimum sentence in your case, including:
- Your prior criminal history
- The sophisticated nature of the crime itself
- The amount of money at issue in the case
- The number of victims involved
We want you to have the information you need to understand how the guidelines will apply in your case. Read The Numbers Count: Fraud and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines to learn how to protect your rights.
