U.S. Sentencing Commission " The United States Sentencing Commission is an independent agency in the judicial branch of government. Its principal purpose is to establish sentencing policies and practices for the federal courts, including detailed guidelines prescribing the appropriate form and severity of punishment for offenders convicted of federal crimes. While the development, monitoring, and amendment of the sentencing guidelines is the centerpiece of the agency's work, the Commission provides training, conducts research on sentencing-related issues, and serves as an information resource for Congress, criminal justice practitioners, and the public."
