US Sentencing Guidelines Chapter 1 US Sentencing Guidelines Chapter 1

 

The United States Sentencing Guidelines form a basis for all sentences in federal court. In certain circumstances, federal judges can give a sentence lower than the suggested guideline range. For the most part, however, only those sentences within the guideline range are considered reasonable. To calculate a sentence, first look up the federal crime committed and see what the base sentence for that crime is. Then, look to see whether any "enhancements" apply.
