      The Commission establishes sentencing policies and practices for the federal courts. Each year, the Commission reviews and refines these policies in light of congressional action, decisions from courts of appeals, sentencing-related research, and input from the criminal justice community.   Criminal Deterrence and Sentencing Severity by Andreas von Hirsch (Author), Anthony E Bottoms (Author), Elizabeth Burney (Author), P.O. Wikstrom (Author) & .

      Mandatory sentencing laws are a response by state legislatures to their perception of the public's desire to end judicial leniency and treat similarly all people who break the same law. Federal law used to prescribe mandatory sentences; these are now used more like guidelines. More commonly, criminal statutes do not carry mandatory sentences. Criminal codes may incorporate more than one single approach. These approaches can be seen as a spectrum of judicial discretion. Indefinite and indeterminate sentences, at one end, are those that allow judges and parole boards the most discretion and authority. Determinate and definite sentences, at the other end, allow little or no discretion.

      Sentencing After a criminal defendant is convicted or pleads guilty, a judge will decide on the appropriate punishment during the sentencing phase of a criminal case. In some circumstances, the judge is able to enhance or reduce a sentence based upon factors specific to the crime and the defendant. A sentence may include fines, incarceration.
