Interesting (non-Blakely) sentencing items in the papers
Though I continue to be consumed by Blakely, Booker, Shepard stories (see all the links here with just some of last week's fun), two recent newspaper pieces are great reminders of other important and interesting sentencing issues:
- This article from Washington Post discusses the efforts of Kenneth Starr to overturn the Virginia death sentence of convicted murderer Robin Lovitt.
- This article from the San Francisco Chronicle discusses shame punishments broadly in conjunction with reporting that Oakland has plans to plaster "on bus stop signs or even 10-foot by 22-foot billboards" the faces of persons "caught by surveillance cameras and convicted of solicitation."

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Interesting (non-Blakely) sentencing items in the papers:
My Fiance was recently convicted of 4th degree aggravated assault. 1st time offender (Not even any misdemeanors) We believe an instruction of self defense should have been given to the jury, and we are in process of appealing his case to the 6th district court of appeals. The Common pleas judge sentenced him to the max of 18 months. We feel this is unfair & recently in our county a man charged with attemted murder only rec'vd 6 month's & probation. How is this fair & how can I help my fiance?
