Federal Convictions Have Harsh Penalties

Convictions of federal crimes have sentences determined by the Federal Sentencing Guidelines. A federal judge will review these guidelines when imposing any sentence. At a top level, the guidelines are based on the type of offense and the conduct associated with the crime. Mitigating or aggravating factors have a profound impact on sentencing. Examples of these factors are whether the crime was committed for monetary gain, the role of the defendant in the crime and any prior convictions. There is no parole in the federal system.

There are multiple classes for federal crimes, each with varying sentencing requirements. All federal felony crime sentences can include harsh “five figure” fines. The bottom line on the possible number years of incarceration in a federal prison are as follows:

  • Class “A” felonies earn a prison sentence of life without parole and can include a death sentence
  • Class “B” felonies earn a prison sentence of up to 60 years
  • Class “C” felonies earn a prison sentence of up to 40 years
  • Class “D” felonies earn a prison sentence of up to 25 years
  • Class “E” felonies earn a prison sentence of up to 15 years
  • Class “F” felonies earn a prison sentence of up to 12 years
  • Class “G” felonies earn a prison sentence of up to 10 years
  • Class “H” felonies earn a prison sentence of up to 6 years
  • Class “I” felonies earn a prison sentence of up to 4 years
