Sentencing in a New York criminal case is simpler than in a federal case. Sentencing in a federal case is far more complex and involved. Although the sentencing guidelines are no longer mandatory in federal sentencing, they are the starting point in identifying the client’s sentencing range. Understanding how the guidelines apply in your case is critical to calculating your criminal history category, calculating the offense level and being mindful of your role in the charged conduct. It is also important to identify additional enhancement factors, identify the appropriate deductions for minor role, explore mitigation based upon your history and characteristics, and submitting a persuasive sentencing brief in support of the appropriate sentence, regardless of whether there is a statutory mandatory minimum sentence required or not.
