What are federal criminal sentences and where will I serve time?

Video Transcription

The sentence that you’re going to get on a federal case depends on many different types of factors. It depends on the type of case that you were charged with. It depends on whether there is a plea that was negotiated or whether you were convicted at trial. What most people don’t realize is what also is really important is the relationship that your attorney has with the prosecutor, with the agents involved in the case and with the judge that’s going to handling your sentencing.

We’ve handled hundreds of federal cases in district courts in Florida and in district courts all across the United States. It has an enormous impact, the relationship that your lawyer does have with the prosecutor and with the judge. It’s not always improtant just what type of sentence you get and how long it is but it’s essential where you’re going to serve that sentence. Our clients want to be close by their families. Sometimes our clients have specific medical conditions that need for them to be placed in certain facilities.

There’s often other facilities that make available educational seminars that can reduce your time. If that’s the type of facility that you would want to go, then we’ll do everything that we can to make sure that you go to the best facility that is closest to your family where all of your conditions whether medical or not can be treated and [that 00:01:14] you could take classes so that you can further reduce the amount of time that you’re going to be spending in custody.
