Annotation: Activities and accomplishments of the U.S. Sentencing Commission during 1992 are summarized in this annual report which notes that the Commission has grown from an agency focused primarily on sentencing guideline reform to one with a multifaceted responsibility to collect and analyze data and conduct substantive criminal justice research.
Abstract: The Commission is responsible for developing and monitoring sentencing policies and practices for Federal Courts. It promulgates sentencing guidelines, subject to congressional review, that prescribe the appropriate form and severity of punishment for offenders convicted of Federal crimes. The Commission's seven voting members, three of whom must be Federal judges, are appointed to staggered 6-year terms. The Commission's staff of about 100 employees is organized into five main offices: General Counsel, Monitoring, Policy Analysis, Training and Technical Assistance, and Administration. The Commission serves as a clearinghouse for Federal sentencing information. Activities of the Commission during fiscal year 1992 pertained to sentencing guideline amendments, legal issues, sentencing guideline training and education, and research. Appendixes contain a description of data files maintained by the Commission and selected criminal justice and sentencing statistics by State district. Tables and figures
