What are the punishments for federal criminal convictions?
Federal convictions can result in harsh penalties, depending upon the exact crime and its severity, as well as the level of culpability in each individual case. Federal crimes classed as misdemeanors can result in up to a year of jail time or fines of up to $100,000.
Even the lightest of felony federal crimes are punishable by imprisonment of up to five years, and the worst offenders may face life imprisonment or $250,000 fines. Drug-related federal offenses often carry mandatory minimum sentences that cannot be avoided if a conviction is made.
