It continues to serve defendants arrested on federal charges. Busted by the Feds are the gold standard for technical information, points about the law, and clear communication par excellence. It's about time to give hope and reunite families. Defendants, as well as their families, loved ones, attorneys, and ordinary citizens, should read this book. This is the most important book ever written for a Federal defendant.


Busted by the Feds is the classic source for the help you need with your defense. It covers everything from the time of your arrest, through bail, plea bargaining, going to trial or pleading out, and sentencing. It also includes essential material on the Bureau of Prisons policies that will affect you if you are eventually incarcerated. Busted also includes the Federal Sentencing Guidelines for all federal offenses. Plus depth explanations of how the guidelines work in specific cases: the base offense levels, as well as aggravating and mitigating factors and possible upward or downward departures. There is extensive consideration of the now-advisory nature of the Guidelines since the Booker decision in 2005 and the subsequent decisions by the Supreme Court in Rita, Kimbrough, Gall, and Nelson.


These subjects, which can be of great importance in obtaining a lesser sentence, are explained in a clear and easy-to-understand way. The Booker chapter, under the section More Practical Advice, contains 55 examples of areas where a downward variation can be obtained in specific cases. A downward variation can potentially save the defendant years of incarceration, and you could be that defendant. The new TWENTIETH Edition contains the most up-to-date information, including the latest list of all Bureau of Prisons Institutions, the current list of countries with Prisoner Exchange Treaties with the United States, current information on changes in Bureau of Prisons policies, and important legal decisions this last year.
