Federal Criminal Sentencing

In federal criminal prosecutions, 95 percent of cases result in a plea agreement. Federal sentencing hearings can be as complex as a trial. Federal judges must consider federal sentencing guidelines when sentencing someone convicted of a crime.

The guidelines are based on the seriousness of the crime and your criminal record. However, the guidelines are now only advisory. The trial court must also consider the nature and circumstances of the offense and the history and characteristics of the accused.

The lawyers at Hayes Ruemmele have extensive experience dealing with the guidelines and mitigation and can help you understand them.
