Federal Sentencing Guidelines Can Be Harsh

Recently a man was sentenced in the United States District Court in East St. Louis, Illinois, to 188 months imprisonment for conspiracy to distribute in excess of 1000 kilograms of marijuana. This man was one of 17 co-defendants who have been convicted of transporting large quantities of marijuana from Tucson to East St. Louis; Atlanta, Georgia; Lima, Ohio and St. Louis Missouri between 2000 and 2007.

In the United States Federal Courts drug conspiracy charges like these are among the most common charges filed by the United States Attorney's Office. The consequences for these charges can be severe. When a defendant is found guilty or pleads guilty to a criminal offense in Federal Court their sentence is determined by the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.
