Sunday's sentencing blogsphere stroll
A Sunday afternoon stroll around the blogsphere has led me to these notable posts on sentencing topics:
- TalkLeft in this post discusses the fascinating news that a federal judge in California, responding to a lawsuit assailing the horrid state of health care in state prisons, has ordered California to show cause why the prison health care system shouldn't be placed into receivership.
- Crim Prof Blog updates here the story of the Indiana death row inmate, due to be executed this week, who is seeking a reprieve in order to donate his liver to his dying sister. The Indiana Parole Board has rejected the request, and Governor Mitch Daniels will have the final say in a case which provides a different perspective on a "culture of life."
Appellate Law & Policy has posts on interesting sentencing decisions from the First Circuit and Fifth Circuit. The Fifth Circuit case, US v. Piniero (available here) involves a Booker remand for resentencing (the issue was preserved below, and government could not meet its harmless error burden).
- Gideon at The Connecticut Law Blog has this post discussing a bill to amend the state's sex offender registry law.
- White Collar Crime Prof Blog in this post reports on interesting federal sentencings in a Philadelphia corruption scandal.
