Bond And Sentence Reduction
Representation For Reducing A Sentence
If you have been convicted of a misdemeanor or felony offense — including accepting a plea agreement — you may have been released pending sentencing. Judges in Florida use a standard state sentencing guideline but it is important to have an experienced lawyer fighting on your behalf.
Retaining the most experienced attorney is important because the sentencing decision will often come down to the judge listening to psychologists, chemical dependency professionals and other independent specialists to mitigate the sentence.
As a former prosecutor and now a defense lawyer with more than 30 total years of experience in criminal law in the Tampa Bay area, I know the key experts whom judges listen to and the legal issues that courts take into consideration when making a decision about the length and severity of the sentence.
Bond Reductions — Don’t Call The Bondsman Until You Call Me
After an arrest and formal charges, the courts apply an approved standard dollar amount for a bail. Every charge has a pre-determined bond amount. Call me as soon as possible after the arrest. If the bond is too high, I will argue for a reduced charge and/or reduced bond amount. I am often able to help my clients get released on their own recognizance, without paying any bail.
