Summer Series – District Judge


Monday, July 10, 2023 – 11:00 AM to 1:30 PM


Bryan Simpson U.S. Courthouse
Courtroom 10B & 9th Floor
300 North Hogan Street
Jacksonville, Florida

After a defendant has been convicted of a crime, the judge is tasked with imposing a sentence that is sufficient but not greater than necessary to comply with the purposes of sentencing. How does the judge decide the “right” sentence? Watch a sentencing hearing and then join U.S. District Judge Marcia Morales Howard for a lunchtime discussion about the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and federal sentencing.

Questions? Call (904) 549-1950
