Ex-President of Guatemala – Department of Justice Criminal Prosecution

Herrick represented former Guatemalan President Alfonso Portillo in defense of a federal money laundering conspiracy charge and other charges following his extradition to the United States. President Portillo pled guilty to a reduced charge and other charges following successful negotiations with the U.S. Attorney's Office, Southern District of New York. Herrick then successfully argued to the U.S. Bureau of Prisons that it credit time already served by President Portillo - including time served in Guatemala while awaiting extradition - to his sentence, greatly reducing the period of incarceration ultimately served.
