Some of us use proxy servers for VPN purposes, because it's just good security. However, the US Sentencing Commission was recently considering whether or not the use of a proxy server should be considered "sophisticated means," such that it could increase jailtime in sentencing for a crime. As the EFF notes, the Commission has rejected this concept for now, though, it's not entirely clear why or if this will change at a later date. However, for now, rest assured that using a proxy server doesn't automatically mean you deserve greater jailtime than if you don't.
