The "Other" Battle
Sentences depend upon a multitude of factors and may range from a petty fine to lifelong incarceration. As such, the objective of defendants and their legal counsel is to minimize the severity of an eventual sentence. The criminal defense attorneys of Newton Barth firmly believe in maintaining the highest level of intensity and commitment to the client’s representation, and that the sentencing phase is an absolutely critical phase of a client’s defense.
Mistakenly, some attorneys undervalue the importance of sentencing hearings and look at them as something of a foregone conclusion. To the criminal defense attorneys of Newton Barth, sentencing hearings are a part of the process and demand our best research, exacting preparation, and our most aggressive posture with the goal of minimizing the impact of a sentence on our clients and their loved ones.
