Description

This top-selling product is now available in a new 2016 edition that contains amendments effective November 1, 2016 and earlier. These guidelines will apply to more than 90 percent of all felony and “Class A misdemeanor” cases in the federal courts. The U.S. Sentencing Commission has ongoing responsibilities and authority to monitor the guidelines, submit to Congress appropriate modifications of the guidelines and recommended changes in criminal statutes, and establish education and research programs. As new criminal statutes are enacted, and more is learned about what motivates and controls criminal behavior, congressional awareness has mandated that this dynamic field requires continuous review by an expert body to revise sentencing policies. 

About the Author:
The United States Sentencing Commission (“Commission”) is an independent agency in the judicial branch composed of seven voting and two non-voting ex officio members. Its principal purpose is to establish sentencing policies and practices for the federal criminal justice system that will assure the ends of justice by promulgating detailed guidelines prescribing the appropriate sentences for offenders convicted of federal crimes. The guidelines and policy statements declared by the Commission are issued pursuant to Section 994(a) of Title 28, United States Code.
