This report by the U.S. Sentencing Commission focuses on three specific assessments: (1) the guidelines' impact on the transparency, certainty, & severity of punishment; (2) the impact of the guidelines on pre-sentencing, inter-judge, & regional disparity; & (3) research on racial, ethnic, & gender disparities in sentencing today.
