U.S.A. v. Ford, Criminal No. 06-643 (U.S.D.C.) An extraordinarily detailed Motion to Vacate Sentence Based On Prosecutorial Misconduct by Ms. Lefeber, led to a new trial and a greatly reduced sentence for her client, Harold Ford. The defendant, who was originally sentenced to 23 years imprisonment on drug charges stemming from a 2006 arrest, ultimately pled guilty pursuant to an agreement and received a 5-year sentence, a huge reduction from the original sentence. Mr. Ford was released within months of his sentencing.
