Potential Penalties for Federal Criminal Defendants

Most criminal offenses under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines include a range of penalties, including fines, probation, or prison sentences. Federal statutes may also impose additional penalties for specific crimes, including the forfeiture of assets, restitution for the victims, and supervised release.

The Federal Sentencing Guidelines also provide federal judges with substantial discretion in making their decisions on penalties.
