Federal Criminal Sentencing Procedures

A federal court must consider the following factors when determining the appropriate sentence:

  • the nature of the offense and the specific conditions surrounding it, as well as the history and character of the defendant;
  • the need for the imposed sentence;
  • to be in line with the seriousness of the offense, to promote respect for the law, and to provide just punishment for the offense;
  • to provide appropriate deterrence to criminal conduct;
  • to protect the public from further crimes of the defendant; and
  • to provide the defendant with needed educational or vocational training, medical care, or other correctional treatment in the most effective manner;
