Ty Warner Decision Illustrates Broad Sentencing Discretion


September 19, 2015

Sills Cummis & Gross Member Richard Sapinski is quoted in this BNA article about how the Ty Warner decision illustrates broad sentencing discretion.  It was taken from one of the 2015 ABA Joint Fall CLE Meeting panels in which Rich took part. 

As seen in the article, "Speaking on the Sept. 19 ABA panel, Richard Sapinski of Sills Cummis & Gross P.C. in Newark, NJ, said defense counsel need to know the judge's 'personal philosophy, what the judge has done in prior cases,' and tailor their arguments accordingly."
