Big reports from Indiana and Minnesota

I was planning to blog a bit less while at this conference, but there is just too much exciting stuff going on for me to stay away from the computer.  Most notably today, I have received word of two (huge) reports on state sentencing from Indiana and Minnesota:

  • From Indiana, Marcia Oddi of Indiana Law Blog spotlight the state's recent "Final Report of the Sentencing Policy Study Committee" (which can be accessed here).  The report runs a total of 142 pages(!), but has a helpful executive summary and seems packed with interesting information on a broad range of sentencing issues.  And Marcia Oddi spotlights the Blakely parts in this helpful post, which details that the Committee is recommending statutory changes to "Blakely-ize" Indiana's sentencing system.

  • From Minnesota, we get the state's Sentencing Guidelines Commission's "2005 Report to the Legislature" (which can be accessed here). It is (only!) 80+ pages long, but has a helpful executive summary which reviews Blakely issues and the sex offender developments recently noted here.  The report also covers, with both data and notable graphics, other state sentencing developments.
