Federal Sentencing Guidelines Can Be Harsh

Recently a man was sentenced in the United States District Court in East St. Louis, Illinois, to 188 months imprisonment for conspiracy to distribute in excess of 1000 kilograms of marijuana. This man was one of 17 co-defendants who have been convicted of transporting large quantities of marijuana from Tucson to East St. Louis; Atlanta, Georgia; Lima, Ohio and St. Louis Missouri between 2000 and 2007.

In the United States Federal Courts drug conspiracy charges like these are among the most common charges filed by the United States Attorney's Office. The consequences for these charges can be severe. When a defendant is found guilty or pleads guilty to a criminal offense in Federal Court their sentence is determined by the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.

I would highly recommend Brent When feeling uncomfortable with the public defender in IL, I decided to seek additional information from Brent. I was impressed with Brent's knowledge and experience. I ended up firing my public defender (who was about to have me plead guilty) to hire Brent. After hiring Brent, we reviewed all of the details of my case. He immediately saw "red flags" and was able to investigate my case thoroughly, and in the end filed a motion to dismiss the case. My case was thrown out by the judge siding with Brent instead of the Attorney General from the state. In facing some significant charges, Brent was able to make me feel comfortable and I immediately thought I could trust his knowledge and experience to help me defend my rights in court. I knew he was fighting for me and could prove the charges were false. I would highly recommend Brent if you are need of a competent and professional lawyer to represent you
