Good Luck, Ben
Sentencing policy got some bad news today when Ben Barlyn left as director of the NJ Sentencing Commission and moved to PA to be a county prosecutor. It’s great to know the good DAs (not to mention criminal justice as a whole) have another ally at work now, but it’s a loss to sentencing policy that those of you who’ve seen his amazing work and read his posts here can attest to. I’m hoping he’ll still be able to drop in here every now and then. And I hope those people in PA know how lucky they just got.
