Czech term or phrase: dolní polovina trestní sazby
Vyňato z rozsudku
Nicméně, vzhledem k dosavadní bezúhonnosti obou obžalovaných soud trest ukládal ještě v dolní polovině zákonné trestní sazby.

English translation:lower half of the statutory sentencing range
Explanation:
In the US they appear to use “statutory sentencing range”. In the UK I would say they put a lot more stress on “guidelines”, but I’m not sure that would work with Czech law.

“The Sentencing Table in the Guidelines Manual shows the relationship between these two factors; for each pairing of offense level and criminal history category, the Table specifies a sentencing range, in months, within which the court may sentence a defendant.”
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Federal_Sentenci...

"Neither the statutory sentencing range nor §3553(a) changed between the time of petitioner’s offense and sentencing."

agree  Pavel Slama: I think you are right to stress that the sentencing in Criminal Code is much more binding than UK Sentencing Council's Guidelines.
