Success in Florida Federal Court Where Client Received Probation Instead of Jail

November 18, 2019

Our client pled guilty to Alien Smuggling and was granted a variance from the Federal Guideline Range that called for a jail sentence. Federal Criminal Defense Attorney Todd D. Greenberg argued that his client’s actions were not for financial but that he acted out of amorous feelings for a coconspirator. Further, his role, in relation to the other conspirators, was minimal. Mr. Greenberg submitted an extensive Pre-Sentence Memorandum setting forth the character of his client, his family contributions, his involvement in religious organizations and his work history to convince the Federal District Court Judge that there was extreme mitigation in his actions and that although his client committed a criminal act, he was far from a criminal. The Federal District Court Judge, acknowledging Mr. Greenberg’s hard work, stated that counsel did a “…very thorough job…” in his client’s sentencing submission and sentenced Mr. Greenberg’s client to two-years’ probation with a special condition of six months house arrest. Instead of a jail sentence which would have taken Mr. Greenberg’s client away from his family and two young children, Mr. Greenberg’s client can remain at home, work and lead a law abiding and productive life. No matter where your problem is, Mr. Greenberg can help. Please call us at 718-268-0400 or visit us at
