Attorney Receives “miraculous sentence” in federal methamphetamine case

The grandmother of my client, Armando L. had traveled from Mexico to attend the sentencing hearing in front of United States District Court Judge Anhello. With a crucifix in hand in court, she said that she was praying for a miracle for her grandson, who facing a probable sentence of at least five years custody.

The sentence that Armando received today was nothing short of miraculous. While he was initial facing a potential sentence of life imprisonment, through aggressive negotiations with the U.S. Attorney , the government decided to recommend an unusually low sentence of approximately five years.

After my office submitted extensive sentencing documents and reference letters from Armando's family members , the judge decided that a sentence of only thirty six months was appropriate. The judge focused on the extensive documentation of Armando's employment history, lack of criminal record, and extensive ties to the community. This is a surprising and unprecedented sentence for multi ounce and numerous deliveries of meth.

Like Armando's grandmother, I believe that miracles happen from time to time in the court. But in my law office we put in the extensive work and background investigation to maximize the chance for the best sentencing result like that which occurred today.

I know that I will savor the delicious taste of Abuela Rosa's chili rellenos . And so will Armando, who will probably be free in less than fourteen months instead of ten years after credit for time served and completing the Bureau of Prisons's drug program.

Congratulations to Armando .L and to his family for all the hard work and assistance that you gave to my office in helping to achieve this miraculous result. And thanks to the prayers and the presence of Armando's grandmother, Rosa.
