Earlier this month, a sentencing reform bill was introduced in the Senate containing a provision that would establish five-year minimum prison terms for individuals found guilty of providing “controlled goods or services” to terrorists or weapons proliferators or to anyone on the U.S. sanctions list. Under the proposed bill, controlled goods or services are defined as applying to any “article, item, technical data, service or technology” listed or included on the United States Munitions List (USML) or the Commerce Control List, both of which control the export and re-export of a broad range of U.S.-origin goods. A parallel sentencing bill proposed in the House of Representatives does not contain the provision on minimum penalties for sanctions violators.
