U.S.A. v. Taylor, Crim. No. 18-328 (U.S.D.C.) In a highly sensitive case involving a guilty plea to an internet crime, Ms. Lefeber’s client received a sentence of 1 day in jail, where the sentencing guidelines called for 7-8 years imprisonment. Ms. Lefeber successfully argued for this huge downward variance based upon psychological issues and her client’s extraordinary rehabilitation. In seeking mitigation in sentencing, Ms. Lefeber worked closely with a mental health expert who testified as to the root causes of her client’s behavior to demonstrate to the Court why leniency was appropriate.
