Check Section 1028 Sentences

A letter from the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts informs the courts, defenders, and probation officers that "defendants who have been convicted of possessing false, stolen, or unlawfully produced identification documents, in violation of 18 U.S.C.ยง 1028 (a)(4) or (6), may have been incorrectly sentenced under that statute's felony provisions, instead of the misdemeanor penalty provisions."
