About the Resource Center

The Robina Institute’s Sentencing Guidelines Resource Center provides information and downloadable materials related to American sentencing guidelines systems. This includes current versions of the guidelines in each jurisdiction; materials produced by sentencing guidelines commissions (training manuals, worksheets, reports, meeting summaries, and more); guidelines enabling laws and other important sentencing-related statutes; summaries of important interpretive case law; in-depth information about sentencing guidelines and commissions; and detailed profiles of each guidelines system that allow for cross-jurisdictional comparisons.

By bringing these materials together in one place and providing guidance to help visitors understand and make the best use of the materials, the Robina Institute seeks to facilitate the exchange and sharing of information, expertise, and experience; to educate on issues related to sentencing policy, guidelines, and commissions; to promote multi-jurisdictional comparative research and policy analysis; and to promote the adoption and retention of best practices in sentencing guidelines systems.
