Notable sentencing items around the blogsphere

Lots of interesting sentencing items on a number of blogs have caught my eye this evening:

  • Concerning the death penalty, the ASCBlog has this post of the death penalty after Roper, and the Death Penalty Information Center has a number of intriguing "what's new" items here.

  • The Ninth Circuit Blog has this detailed post on the Supreme Court's decision in Shepard (basics here, commentary here and here and here) which explains how the decision provides "rich opportunities for creative litigation" and why "the opinion will have far-reaching effects."

  • SCOTUSblog has more in this post on the legal wrangling surrounding the Medellin case concernig foreign nationals on death row (background here).

  • CrimProf Blog spotlights here a forthcoming article by Youngjae Lee entitled The Constitutional Right Against Excessive Punishment (available from SSRN at this link), and also has a great collection here of items concerning the cost savings that could flow from alternatives to incarceration.
