Description: With white collar prison sentences soaring and the guidelines on the rise, this program explores a variety of tested sentencing strategies to defend against higher sentences.  Although the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines are still the starting point of sentencing for prosecutors and judges, defense attorneys have the ability to roll that ball back.  This distinguished panel of experts outlines how to deconstruct the Guidelines, particularly the fraud Guidelines at 2B1.1, and where to find the empirical and historical evidence to support deconstruction arguments.  Judges have more discretion than ever before, with the ability to offer leniency and to reject guidelines outright, but it is the defense attorney that can put the judge in the best to position to exercise that discretion.  As explained by one panelist, Federal District Judge Robert T. Dawson, the real work at sentencing is with regard to variances, and this program gives the defense practitioner the keys to unlocking those variances.  When push comes to shove, white collar defense attorneys must be sufficiently armed to defend against higher sentences and this program provides that critical ammunition.
