Information on Sentencing Advocacy
Strong Advocacy from Portland Criminal Defense Lawyers
In some cases, a guilty verdict cannot be avoided. This can be due to a number of reasons, including overwhelming evidence. In these situations, the best option is to seek the lowest sentencing possible and this can be done during the sentencing hearing. The sentencing hearing may take place right after a guilty verdict is given, or it could be postponed until a later time.
When you do face a sentencing hearing, it's imperative that you have Portland criminal defense lawyers that are equipped to effectively defend you and your case. You need professionals with proven trial experience that know how to seek a sentencing that puts you in the best position possible. There will be a judge that determines the penalties you are issued, so your attorney needs to be able to convince the judge to give a reduced sentence.
