Counsel will be experienced in arguing the equities in favor of a more favorable sentence for the defendant.  For noncitizen defendants, these same equities, and more, can be argued in favor of a sentence that does not trigger adverse immigration consequences.  See § 3.23, supra.  See also Appendix F, infra, concerning various equitable factors to argue in connection with post-conviction relief, that also apply to sentence.
