TRIALS: As an expert witness in cases involving drugs, robberies, assaults, white collar crimes, etc., the jurors hear from an expert witness that a person’s past does matter. We all know the way a testimony is given is very important. Jurors connect with Larry and might believe your client is not guilty or at the very least, less culpable.
SENTENCING: Larry’s expertise gives the Judge a reason to depart from the sentencing guidelines. When asked what affect a prison sentence will have on an individual, the Judge gets a different perspective and can make a better determination on what the proper sentence should be. At the very least, the Judge has a reason to sentence an individual at the bottom of the guidelines.
