Intricacies of Federal Prosecutions
The Federal Government has enormous resources to investigate and prosecute offenses throughout the United States. Becoming caught up in a federal prosecution raises all sorts of questions about what decisions to make, and those decisions must be made quickly. Andrew Gay, Jr., educates himself about changes in the law, including the First Step Act (1SA) and Fair Sentencing Act (FSA), and will ensure you receive all the downward adjustments, departures and variances as required under 18 U.S.C. §3553 and the United States Supreme Court’s decision in United States v. Booker.
Federal mandatory minimum sentences are harsh in cases involving Possession with Intent to Distribute a controlled substance (21 U.S.C. §841), Conspiracy to distribute drugs (21 U.S.C. §846), and possessing firearms (18 U.S.C. §922). Knowing your legal representative is already vastly familiar with these complex rules and guidelines will provide the needed assurance that you will receive all benefits to which you are entitled.
Base guidelines for Mail or Wire Fraud (18 U.S.C. §1341 & §1343)/Embezzlement/Aggravated Identity Theft (18 U.S.C. 1028A), are determined under United States Sentencing Guideline Section 2B1.1, and increase with the amount of fraud accomplished, or attempted. Understanding how the guidelines work is crucial to a successful outcome.

Speaker: Andrew Gay, Jr., Philadelphia Criminal Defense Lawyer
“In a criminal matter, preparation is key. Whether you are walking into a preliminary hearing room, or you are preparing for trial.
When I’m preparing for your criminal trial, I will look over every scrap of evidence that exists. I will look at police reports, witness statements, 911 tapes, transcripts of 911 tapes, preliminary hearing testimony, anything that is available for me will have been thoroughly reviewed and discussed with you before we walk in.
I will know what each individual witness has to say about the most important issues in your trial. And it’s honing in on those important issues and the differences in testimony between the prosecution witnesses and the defense witnesses that will better prepare me to make sure that the correct argument is made to your jury.
In order to make sure that I’m able in your criminal trial to attack the witnesses that are testifying against you, I make sure that I look at each and every statement and compare it to their prior testimony at a preliminary hearing to make sure that there is no way for them to change their story, to make sure that there’s no way for them to then embellish upon what they previously told the police, or what they previously testified to in court. And many times, being able to attack a witness based on prior inconsistent testimony is what helps us win criminal trials.
It’s very important for you as the client to make sure that you have someone on your side from the very beginning of the case. So waiting to hire a lawyer until after the preliminary hearing many times is a big mistake, because if the lawyer who’s representing you at trial also properly prepared for your preliminary hearing and interviewed your witnesses prior to your preliminary hearing, the trial result is going to be much better.”
