Summary

The Sentencing Commission was required classify criminal offenses into felony and misdemeanor categories on the basis of their severity. The Commission developed classification criteria to guide the classification process and to ensure that there was a systematic and rational basis for the classifications. The purpose of establishing the classification criteria was to create a rational and consistent philosophical basis for classifying offenses; to assure proportionality in severity; and to provide a guidepost for classifying new crimes in the future. The findings and recommendations contained in these reports are based on the offense classification criteria, and cover recent legislative activity on proposed changes to criminal offenses.
