The federal sentencing guidelines are designed to create more serious sentences than similar state offenses. From white collar crimes to drug crimes many federal indictments result in mandatory minimum prison sentences.

In order to achieve a beneficial sentence recommendation or plea agreement, your attorney must understand how federal sentences are calculated. According to the federal sentencing guidelines, your base offense level and your criminal history category are calculated depending on your criminal charge.

The court will adjust your base offense level after considering the following:

  1. The level of violence committed
  2. The weight of controlled substance
  3. Criminal History
  4. Role and Participation in the offense (major vs. minimal or minor role)
  5. The value of loss
  6. Other facts related to how the crime was committed
