Sentencing Guidelines and Penalties for Federal Crimes
Federal Sentencing Guidelines “guide” federal prosecutors and judges with regards to penalties sought and sentencing imposed. These guidelines are not legal mandates and federal judges are under no obligation to strictly adhere to them. This means that penalties for those found guilty can range both above and below those prescribed in the sentencing guidelines.
Because the guidelines are not set in stone, the right defense and strategy can result in reduced sentencing or a favorable plea deal for clients that is well below the recommended sentencing.
Penalties for Federal Crimes May Include
- Fines: Fines are a common penalty imposed on those convicted of federal crimes. They often include court costs and other fees.
- Probation: Probation is a form of supervised release, carrying with it unique stipulations and terms that must be adhered to. Given that federal crimes can carry stiff prison sentences, probation is often an ideal outcome.
- Forfeiture and Seizure: Under civil forfeiture laws, federal prosecutors may seek to seize property or assets that are connected, involved in or gained as a result of the criminal activity.
- Restitution: In cases where an individual or individuals have been financially impacted by the crime(s) in question, restitution may be ordered to pay back or financially restore those affected.
- Statutory Penalties: Those convicted may face additional “statutory” penalties. For example, a conviction of healthcare fraud may also bar that individual from receiving Medicaid or Medicare.
- Prison: Most federal crimes have penalties that include the potential for imprisonment. Sentences for federal crimes can range from months to life in prison depending on the crime, prosecution and judge.
