Our friend Ben Barlyn from the NJ Sentencing Commission sends along a message and a link:
I wanted to pass this along. The link directs you to the material presented by speakers, including Rick Kern and Judge Ross, who recently testified in support of the establishment of a permanent sentencing commission in California. I'm not through digesting all the great stuff but there appears to be a trove of pertinent material, especially the report submitted by the Stanford School of Criminal Justice. Bon appetit, and have a great weekend.
You'll also find comments from a couple of judges which are worth reading. Thanks for sending this along, Ben. Anyone else got some really good links for our readers?
