Sentencing comes after conviction and for most that find themselves facing this process, the usual feeling is one of resignation. Since guilt seems to have been proven beyond a reasonable doubt, there is a tendency to simply sit and accept whatever follows. After all, there’s nothing you can do.
However, that is almost always wrong. Like conviction, sentencing is only one of the several phases that a criminal trial goes through and contrary to what most think, a lot can still happen after sentencing and during appeals.
With specialist support, it is still possible for defendants to find a positive conclusion to their case, despite the odds stacked against them. It is still possible for prison sentences to be reduced and alternative (more favorable) sentencing to be sought.
With the right support, an unfavorable trial can be turned around at the last instant and transformed into an almost miraculous win. This is the support that National Legal Professional Associates (NLPA) provides to its clients.
At NLPA, have a deep understanding of the principles and rules that guide sentencing in the US. For more than 25 years, we have been putting this knowledge to work on behalf of defendants all over the country and in that time, we have helped hundreds secure better outcomes.
We believe no case is truly over until all possible alternatives have been exhausted, and no one is better than us at finding the trump card that makes the difference.
The US has an extensive body of principles, statutes and rules that guide sentencing for criminal offenses. Once a crime has been proved, the next question that the court must determine is what sentence the law prescribes for the offense.
Although this may seem straightforward, it can be very complicated, more often than not. The sentencing rules usually contain recommendations for a wide variety of important factors including:
The rules will also include the possibilities for alternative sentencing including community service, probation and incarceration in specific facilities. These rules are often spread over a variety of statutes such that it will often take a monumental effort to find and exploit all the rules that may be favorable to a defendant.
In our experience, if sentencing is allowed to go without much input from the defendant or defense team, nothing can stop the worst from happening. The prosecution will, by default, ask the court for the harshest punishment possible and this may see the defendant spend years or even their whole life in prison.
But that will always be a mistake. We have made it our business to thoroughly understand how the sentencing rules apply in any given case. With our quality legal research assistance, we have helped defendants in even the most unfavorable circumstances access reduced sentences and more favorable disposition.
