Lots of sentencing news from Connecticut
Aided by the terrific coverage from Kirby's Reports and a Public Defender, I see there are interesting sentencing developments coming from Connecticut. With the execution of serial killer Michael Ross slated for May, the state legislature has been considering a bill to abolish the death penalty. But today the Connecticut House today considered and rejected the bill on a vote of 89-60 (details here and here). Meanwhile, still under consideration is a bill to equalize the minimum penalties for crack and powder cocaine offenses under state law (details here and here).
