The Complete Federal Sentencing Guidelines Manual.

From the Pocket Lawyer - Legal app specialists.

An invaluable tool for Attorney’s and Law Students alike. This document also provides a fascinating insight for any citizen interested in Criminal Law and Justice. The Sentencing Guidelines Manual, published by the United States Sentencing Commission, sets the standard in punishment for offences ranging from:

Homicide, Assault, Sexual Abuse, Kidnap, Piracy, Stalking, Theft, Burglary, Robbery, Bribery, Counterfeiting, Drugs, Narco-Terrorism, Racketeering, Gambling, Contraband, Prostitution, Obscenity, Firearms, Illegal Immigration, Treason, Espionage, Weapons of Mass Destruction, Tax Evasion, Environmental offenses and more….

What sentence would someone expect for importing drugs? What about simple possession?

What should happen to someone possessing illegal firearms? Stolen goods? Weapons of Mass Destruction?

What factors might reduce or increase a sentence? What if the defendant has assisted the authorities? What if he has a criminal history? What is the sentencing procedure?

This app will tell you what the guidelines say for each and every offense. Judges must consider the guidelines whenever they sentence somebody.

The application draws upon the complete official document and is easy to navigate through a searchable index. A quick link to the Sentencing Table makes referencing so easy.

Additional online features include access to the United States Code hosted by Cornell University Law School. This makes cross-referencing easier than ever.
