The U.S. Sentencing Commission issued a comprehensive report today on the state of federal sentencing since last year’s Supreme Court decision in U.S. v. Booker, entitled “Report on the Impact of United States v. Booker on Federal Sentencing.” The report analyzes numerous statistics about federal sentences over the past year and, among other things, concludes that: “The severity of sentences imposed has not changed substantially over time. The average sentence length after Booker has increased.” See USSC Report, page vii.
