Client Facing 7-8 Years Imprisonment Sentenced To 1 Day
In a highly sensitive case involving a guilty plea to an internet crime, Ms. Lefeber’s client received a sentence of 1 day in jail, where the sentencing guidelines called for 7-8 years imprisonment. U.S.A. v. Taylor, Crim. No. 18-328 (E.D. Pa). Ms. Lefeber successfully argued for this huge downward variance based upon psychological issues and her client’s extraordinary rehabilitation. In seeking mitigation in sentencing, Ms. Lefeber worked closely with a mental health expert who testified to the root causes of her client’s behavior to demonstrate to the Court why leniency was appropriate.
