Abstract: 
In common law systems, sentencing is an independent stage and completely separate from the stage of conviction. For this and the fact that these legal systems traditionally impose very few limits on the judges discharging the sentencing function, sentencing guidelines are issued by the appeal court judges. Within the Civil systems on the other hand this is carried out knowing that this procedure is overseen by the legislator. The aim is to achieve consistency in the justification and imposition of the sentences, that will be considered below.
