Federal Sentence Less than Half the Guideline Range

Posted on: September 24th, 2013 by Judge Shapiro

On September 23, 2013, Judge Shapiro obtained a federal sentence of less than half the range recommended by the Federal Sentencing Guidelines. The Guideline range was 51-57 months (between 4-5 years), including a mandatory consecutive two-year minimum for aggravated identity theft. Judge Shapiro effectively got just the two-year mandatory consecutive minimum sentence, without any increase on top of that from the Sentencing Guidelines. Both the federal judge and even the federal prosecutor complimented Judge Shapiro on his sentencing memorandum. See sentencing memo here:Sentencing.Memo
