SRC Project Welcome

Welcome to the Sentencing Resource Counsel Project of the Federal Public and Community Defenders.

The primary purpose of this website is to make available a large number of documents and materials from the public record of the United States Sentencing Commission that are not currently available on its website and are otherwise difficult to obtain. These include public comment (including public comment regarding the initial guideline development process), written hearing testimony from early amendment cycles (and some others), hearing transcripts (before 1997), and various reports.

These materials, posted under the “Resources” tab on the right, can be used to trace the history of any given policy decision or guideline amendment promulgated by the Commission.

Be sure to check the Commission’s website as well, as these materials only supplement what is available there.
