One-week (seven-day) sentence for client facing 10-16 months under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines

Posted on: November 4th, 2014 by Judge Shapiro

On October 30, 2014, I obtained a reduced sentence (called a “downward variance” in Federal Sentencing Guideline parlance) for a truck driver who stole a great deal of mail and gift cards contained therein from the Postal Service and its customers. He was facing 10-16 months in jail under the advisory sentencing guidelines, but a federal judge sentenced him to only one week after submission of the attached sentencing memorandum and successful arguments in court.Sentencing.Memo
