Federal sentencing depends on whether your husband is found guilty, his prior record, which might trigger mandatory or enhanced penalties, how serious these are in the court's eyes, mitigation, and allocution. An attorney can assist you with evaluating the prosecution's case, any defenses that you might have, and any plea offer that might be made, so that you can decide whether to plea bargain or go to trial.
