Michael’s client was charged in a 21 count indictment in the Western District of Washington along with 3 other defendants. Our client was faced with a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and a fine of more than $1.2 million dollars. The client’s offense level and criminal history called for a sentence of between 78-87 months. After much work and extensive negotiations with the US Attorney, the US Attorney agreed to dismiss the most serious charge which resulted in a negotiated disposition. After bringing to light our client’s post offense rehabilitation and favorable contributions to society, Michael convinced the Federal Judge to sentence his client to just one year & one day in custody.
