Customer Question

My friend Debbie was picked up in 2004 and got a 15 year federal prison. I need help get her out early. This is what she was charged with.                                          ;                                         &nb sp;     
The feds have charged me with 1 count of felon in posssession if a firearm which they have on my judgement paper as a 922 (g) (1) and a 924 (e) i was told that the 922 was for being a felon with a gun and if anyone violated that 922 (g) and had two or more prior violen felonies they would also be charged with a 924 (e) which is why they say i fall into the catagory of an Armed Career Criminal. But my charges in Ga. was by thier statute a non violent offense. the feds gave me a chapter 4 enhancement due to my past priors by 9 points. i started out at a level 23 and they enhanced me due to my past priors to a level 33 but then took off 3 points for acceptence of responability, wasnt that nice of them. They put me in a catagoy IV. I feel i should be at a level 20 a
