Federal Judge Unimpressed by Defendants' Sentencing Preparations
After receiving an 18-month sentence for embezzlement, a defendant called me, filled with regret for not adequately preparing for his sentencing. It’s one thing to be unaware of what to do, but quite another to know and still not act. This is the crux of his struggle; he saw our interviews with federal judges and understood the necessary steps, yet failed to take action.
The Judge’s comment, “I expected to hear more from you,” highlighted this missed opportunity for mitigation.
Now, he’s committed to not repeating this mistake. He’s diligently working with our team on his release plan, which involves documenting his growth through prison.
Benefit and learn from this defendant’s missed opportunity.
