Have you ever wanted to know the inner workings behind the scenes about rulings made by a federal judge? In this episode, we discuss the role of the United States Probation Office and how the results of forensic accounting, which include actual loss amounts, intended loss amounts, and restitution are important in criminal proceedings.
Once a defendant is arrested, the United States Probation Office assists the federal court in determining pretrial release conditions, calculating a sentencing recommendation, and ensuring that the defendant is complying with the judge's orders after incarceration.
In this episode, we discuss:
- After an arrest, how the US Probation Office interviews the defendant to ascertain the flight risks and makes a recommendation of pre-trial release conditions to the judge.
- What criteria are taken into consideration when a judge sentences the defendant?
- The importance of relevant conduct as part of the pre-sentence report submitted to the judge.
- In most cases in white-collar cases, restitution is required. What happens if a defendant fails to pay restitution as ordered by the Court?
