Posted: 08/28/2015 | Share This Post

After oral arguments in front of Judge Robert M. Dow, Jr. in the District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, Matthew Dowling successfully obtained a three-year probation sentence for our client, who had pleaded guilty to theft of social security funds from the United States Government. This sentence was a major deviation below the sentencing guidelines and what the Government was asking for, which was a sentence of 12-18 months imprisonment.  Jim Fieweger supervised the client's representation.
