Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
Under the fraud and swindles crimes, every one of them is a felony, no misdemeanors and one you are charged with carries up to 30 years in prison (this is not a light weight felony either). Unfortunately, unlike the state system where the prosecutors have much more discretion on many cases, the US Attorneys and the federal courts
have little to no discretion on sentencing with the sentencing guidelines in place and the US Attorneys have very little leeway on reduction of cases where the statutes do not make provisions for the charge being charged as a misdemeanor or a felony and none of the charges here have such leeway.
If your conspiracy
charge had to do with conspiring to commit at least one misdemeanor, then the prosecution would have more discretion in negotiations. At this point, with the charges and elements fitting only felony charges you have a major problem and what you need to be working on is fighting to be sentenced under the bare minimum of the federal sentencing guidelines because reduction to a misdemeanor is pretty much out of the question with these particular charges of fraud, especially where the charge carries up to 30 years in prison.
