The United States Sentencing Commission recently released an online course titled Treatment of Multiple Prior Sentences.  According to the Commission, this “e-Learning course teaches how to correctly apply the single sentence rule when calculating criminal history involving multiple prior offenses.”  These rules are important because scoring criminal history points as a single sentence are almost always more beneficial to the defendant. See USSG § 4A1.2.

 The Training Division provides sentencing resource materials that will help you argue for the best sentence for your clients here.
