Understanding Federal Minimum Sentencing

The federal government has something called mandatory minimum sentencing. Judges have little to no leeway when it comes to sentencing crimes that accompany a mandatory minimum sentence. This means that if convicted of a federal drug violation, you may have to serve a minimum sentence of several years in jail – even if you were convicted for a comparatively minor offense
