Indictments and Criminal Informations are only allegations. All persons charged are
presumed to be innocent unless and until found guilty in court.
A sentence following a finding of guilt is imposed by the Judge after consideration of the
applicable federal sentencing statutes and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.
Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the Judge is also required to consider and
weigh a number of factors, including the nature, circumstances and seriousness of the offense;
the history and characteristics of the defendant; and the need to punish the defendant, protect the
public and provide for the defendant’s educational, vocational and medical needs. For these
reasons, the statutory maximum penalty for the offense is not an accurate indicator of the
potential sentence for a specific defendant.
