Browsing the blogsphere, Blakely-free

This afternoon brings a few interesting (Blakely/Booker-free) sentencing stories and posts to be found around the blogsphere:

  • From Kirby's Report here comes news that the Supreme Court, in a 5-4 vote, has lifted the stay preventing Connecticut from executing serial killer Michael Ross.  This recent post on compelling capital cases provides some background.

  • From How Appealing here is a report and link on a Ninth Circuit ruling that a convicted sex offender's rehabilitative treatment cannot require self-incrimination about sexual history.

  • And Grits for Breakfast here picks up on my prior post asking about a "new right" supporting sentencing reform to explains in detail how, in Texas, the right's embrace of sentencing reform is "part pragmatism, part ideology, and part politics."
