In April 2023, LGR Law was able to obtain an extremely favorable Fed. R. Crim. P. 11(c) (1) (c)[1] plea for a client charged with murder for hire.  His initial plea included his applicable federal guidelines, which were initially 151-188 months in prison, with a ten-year maximum. With the first plea, the client was almost assured a ten-year sentencing.  After reviewing the evidence and engaging in negotiations with the government, LGR law was able to obtain a plea with the government assuring him that he would receive between 24 and 36 months in prison if the court accepted the plea.  The court entered the plea in April of this month.   Sentencing is scheduled for September.

[1] Rule 11(c)(1)(C) of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure provides that if the district court accepts a plea containing an agreement between the government and the defendant about a specific sentence, sentencing range, or the applicability of a specific guide-lines provision, policy statement, or sentencing factor, the court is bound by the parties’ agreement for purposes of sentencing.
