CJA Panel Training: Federal Sentencing Update & Strategy Discussion
The Criminal Justice Act (“CJA”) provides for the appointment of counsel in criminal cases to persons who are financially unable to obtain adequate representation. 18 U.S.C. § 3006A(a). In the Southern District of Texas, in cases where the Federal Public Defender has not been appointed to represent a defendant who is entitled to the assistance of appointed counsel, individual defense attorneys are chosen from a federal panel. The Federal Public Defender is charged with assuring that members of the CJA panel are familiar with federal criminal practice.

This presentation will provide federal criminal defense practitioners with an update on recent trends in federal sentencing law, including a discussion of the Sentencing Guidelines and recent case law. It will also cover frequent sentencing issues and grounds for departure that defense attorneys can raise to argue for lower sentences on behalf of their clients.
