Criminal Legal Skills Series – Part II: Sentencing


On April 5, 2022, the San Diego FBA presented Part 2 of its Two-Part Criminal Legal Skills Series: Sentencing. The panelists discussed various aspects of sentencing, including judge’s preferences, best practices for practitioners, minor role, and safety valve.

Robinson, U.S. District Judge for the Southern District of California; J’Me Forrest, U.S. Attorney’s Office; and Leila Morgan, Federal Defenders of San Diego, Inc.
