Advanced Michigan Felony Sentencing Seminar

The Thomas M. Cooley Law School and the Criminal Defense Resource Center of the State Appellate Defender Office presents a criminal justice training event for criminal defense attorneys, probation agents, prosecutors & judges:

Advanced Felony Sentencing Seminar

The seminar is designed for the practicing attorney and the experienced probation agent who have some familiarity with the statutory sentencing guidelines but would like to explore scoring decisions of the appellate courts in greater detail.  The seminar will also address areas of confusion in the application of HYTA, 7111, boot camp, consecutive sentencing and sentence enhancement provisions.  There will also be time set aside for a question and answer period addressing all sentencing questions.
