Description

The United States Sentencing Commission provides timely and objective sentencing data, information, and analysis to inform the ongoing discussion regarding sentencing practices in the federal system. This report continues the Commission’s work analyzing variations in sentencing practices—and corresponding variations in sentencing outcomes—in the federal courts since the Supreme Court’s 2005 decision in United States v. Booker. United States v. Booker, struck the mandatory provision of 18 U.S.C. § 3553(a), making the guidelines effectively advisory.
