The Sentencing Guidelines are issued by the serious group of learned individuals within U.S. Sentencing Commission. It is difficult to pass by a website, with a loud name Sentencing Us (http://www.sentencing.us) without a smile and a token of appreciation to Josh Goldfoot. Sentencing Us is time calculator, kind like a mortgage calculator, except that the former is designed for convicted criminals, while the latter is designed for homeowners. The sentencing guidelines calculator even comes with a mobile edition, enabling those who are about to commit a criminal act, to get a sneak preview of what is to come if caught, from the convenience of one’s mobile smartphone. Notwithstanding its limitations, such work is a positive example of attorney’s attitude towards the modern realities of the Federal criminal law.
