"Restitution Proceedings In Federal Sentencing" - An Online Seminar

On Wednesday, October 20 (9:00 a.m. PST) and Friday, October 22 (12:00 Noon PST), AFDA will conduct an online seminar entitled, "Restitution Proceedings In Federal Sentencing."

The program will run approximately 45 minutes to one hour. It will be held in the ONLINE SEMINARS section of the AFDA web site, which operates like a chat room but with moderator controls. The presentation format will be audio accompanied by the sequential placement of slides in the chat room screen, similar to a powerpoint presentation.

The program will present a five-step analysis in handling restitution determinations. As courts have recognized that restitution is a statutory obligation and thus not based specifically on the sentencing guidelines, this topic remains relevant in our handling of fraud / theft during this remarkable period of uncertainty surrounding the guidelines, as we await the Supreme Court's ruling in Booker / Fanfan.
