The 3Rs of Sentencing Story
Running Time: 1 hour 3 minutes
No matter what the case, there are only three types of sentencing stories defense lawyers ever tell. I call them the 3 “Rs”, and they are: REASONS, RELATIVITY and REDEMPTION. Every case has at least one. With a little bit of luck and whole lot of elbow grease, you may uncover all three.
Understanding the 3 Rs will help you identify, shape, and tell your most powerful and persuasive sentencing stories. In this hour-long session, we use a real-life case example (federal sale of narcotic drugs for sale resulting in death) to illuminate the landscape of the “3Rs”.
