Federal Sentencing Guidelines – Mandatory Minimum Sentences
Federal Sentencing Guidelines set the penalties for federal drug offenses. The government has imposed mandatory minimum sentences for a drug crime conviction.
It is important to understand that federal cases must be handled in different way than state cases. In federal cases, one must assume the federal government has done their “homework” and knows a lot about the target of the investigation. The way a federal case is negotiated and litigated is also very different. Having a strong working relationship with federal prosecutors is crucial to gaining a favorable result for one charged with a federal offense. This relationship is gained through experience dealing with the United States Attorney’s Office frequently and successfully.
The Federal Sentencing Guidelines are a set of rules that dictate how one will be sentenced in federal court. Attorney Vikas Bajaj understands the Guidelines, and has used them to gain lesser sentences for many of his clients. In comparison to a state sentence calculation, federal sentence calculations are extremely complex. Having the right federal defense attorney can make a substantial difference in the outcome of your federal case.
