NYC Sentencing Lawyers

If you have questions about sentencing, and need legal help with your past, or future sentencing, we can help. Judges, not juries, determine sentencing for a convicted criminal defendant. It’s common for the judge to tell a jury not to consider what punishment – when determining whether a defendant is guilty or not. Many times a mistrial is done – when it can be shown the jury was considering punishment when determining guilt.
There are some situations where a jury will decide a convicted criminal’s punishment. In capital punishment cases, judges aren’t allowed to impose the death penalty. It’s up to a jury to decide whether a convicted criminal should be sentenced to die. There are some situations where a criminal statute describes what the punishment will be exactly. For example, some states will specify the misdemeanor shall be accompanied by a fine $1000, or imprisonment, or both. There are other laws, which define a crime as a felony or misdemeanor, but the punishment is defined in separate laws. It’s suggested that if you questions about the sentencing of your case, you should speak to our NYC Criminal lawyers. If you have prior convictions on your record, the sentence that you get may not be the punishment you get. Judges will frequently enhance your sentence, when you have a convicted criminal record.
In some cases, state and federal laws state mandatory sentences, or mandatory minimum sentences. If a defendant is found guilty of one  of those crimes, then judge is legally required to impose a mandatory sentence. The laws are in place which set out the mandatory sentences. Only a few laws are on the books which have mandatory sentences. Judges are allowed to take other factors into consideration when determining the sentence for a defendant. Judges can consider the criminal history of the defendant, the circumstances under which the crime was done, whether the defendant feels remorse about his/her actions.
The defense lawyers you hire can bring a wide array of factors to the judge’s attention. For example, here are some factors your attorney can discuss: your past criminal history (if you’re a first time defender), whether you were the principal antagonist in the crime, what your mental state was at the time, whether anyone was hurt during the commission of the crime.
These are all mitigating factors that can be brought up at the sentencing. We encourage you to speak to our NYC criminal attorneys if you’re facing criminal charges, or have questions about the charges and sentences you face.

What To Do First If a Loved One Is Arrested by Federal Agents

Steps to Follow if Someone You Love is Arrested by Federal Agents
One of the scariest moments in life may possibly be when federal agents show up at your door to arrest someone you love. It can be quite an emotional experience. The knocking on the door alone may be loud enough to inform everyone in the neighborhood just what is taking place. The agents may even bust through the door if you do not answer it quickly enough. These are all real possibilities when someone you love is arrested by federal agents. They can come in and take the person that you care about, all with little explanation. You will be left at a loss to even determine what to do next. That is why it is important to have these steps in mind in case someone that you love is arrested and taken away by federal agents.
The Initial Court Hearing
As soon as the shock of the arrest wears off, you should be aware that the next step is for your loved one to appear before a federal judge. This is a court proceeding that serves as the initial appearance for the individual who has just been arrested. It is at this appearance that everyone involved will find out just what the charges are and how they came about. It is also during this time that any rights that the arrested person has will be dictated to them and what, if any, possibility there is of being released pending trial. If the person is released, this initial court appearance will also dictate the terms of that release.
This is a lot to take in, and you are probably wondering how you will even find out where the hearing will take place. Since this all has come as a shock to you, the chances of you even knowing where your loved one has been taken is rather slim. If you are lucky, the agent that made the arrest will quickly inform you of the charges and where the court appearance will take place. If you were given that information, you can likely find the court online via an Internet search. This will be the courthouse that you need to contact. You can then call them and ask to be connected to the pretrial services office. Tell them the person’s name who was arrested and inquire when the court hearing is. If you call too quickly, they may not yet know. If so, give them a few hours and then try back again.
Retain an Attorney
As soon as you are secure in the knowledge of where your loved one is being held and when the initial court appearance will be, you will need to get them a lawyer. You will want to retain a lawyer that is familiar with federal law and who will represent your loved one at their initial court appearance. Your goal is to get the person out of jail and back home with you as quickly as possible. A lawyer can help make that happen, especially if your loved one has no prior criminal record. If you are unable to get a lawyer hired in time, a judge will ensure that someone from the federal public defender’s pool is there for the first court hearing. This is not a bad idea, particularly if you are unable to get your own lawyer there quickly enough. You can always go back after the hearing and hire an attorney of your own choosing.
Attend the Hearing
You will likely want to be there with your loved one at the initial court hearing. Make sure that you leave your home or office in plenty of time. When you arrive, you will want to check in with the office and see if there are any questions that you can help answer in order to assist your loved one in getting released. After the hearing, the hope is that you can both return home together. If that is not possible, make sure that you ask where the person is going to be held and have your attorney meet them there to start work on the defense.
