I'm researching crimes and sentencing for a story and came up with some interesting tidbits:
The Federal minimum mandatory sentences for
"robbery ashore by a pirate" is life in prison
"Interference in a Civil Service exam" gets you 10 days in the pen.
"Refusal to operate railroad or telegraph lines" gets you locked up for six months.
"Bribery of a meat inspector" can send you up the river for 1 year.
but TREASON will get you five years.
Stay out of trouble!
