How Do The Sentencing Guidelines Work In Federal Criminal Court?
Since 1986, sentencing in federal court is done according to United States Federal Sentencing Guidelines Manual. In the early 2000s, that manual became advisory rather than obligatory.

Federal criminal charges include illegal activity that crosses state lines or violate certain federal statutes. Any legal matter that involves the United States Constitution or any of the laws passed by Congress also falls under federal jurisdiction. While all criminal charges are to be taken seriously, an accusation of a federal offense is especially grave for your reputation, as a federal conviction on your record will appear more severe to future employers.
