If you are getting ready to be sentenced in federal court, I would be prepared. To that end, I would use the follow bullet points to access if you are on track.
1- Is your Pre Sentence Report accurate?
2- Do you have the appropriate evidence for RDAP?
3- Does your narrative to the court have any rationalizations?
4- Have you researched the proper prison?
5- Are you prepared incase you get remanded to custody?
6- Are you simply letting your lawyer do all the work?
7- Are you comfortable with your criminal restitution or understand the ramifications of restitution before, during and after prison?
8- Have you considered offering a sentence to counter the government’s recommendation?
9- Do you fully understand the guideline ranges?
10- Are your business affairs in order, and have you learned how to properly manage a business from the inside?
11- Have you set the appropriate tone with your family and network?
The attached video provides greater detail into each of these questions.
