Due to Our Mitigation Investigation, Client Was Granted Probation
HRG was hired by the defense team of a client indicted and adjudged guilty of the charges. Our role in the case was to conduct a sentencing mitigation investigation and provide a comprehensive report profiling the defendant to persuade the court to fashion a sentence either in departure, or at variance, or both, from the advisory guidelines system. Our investigation included personal history, statements of family and community support, character references, evidence the victims were amenable to, and the defendant was willing to repair harms and make restitution. Our report established defendant, as a first-time offender, already suffered personally & financially due to the conviction, posed no threat, successfully served months of unsupervised release without incident, and was amenable to being supervised by the court, as well as the probation office. Result: The client was granted probation.
