Great week-ending sentencing commentary
This week closes with some great sentencing from many sources. As noted here, Prof. Vik Amar on FindLaw has great insights about California Supreme Court's big Blakely decision earlier this week in Black. In addition, these other commentaries are not to be missed:
- As a follow up to this post noting Blakely's birthday, JDB has this poignant reflection at the Infinity Ranch blog on the hopes that Blakely raised and that Booker dashed for the federal sentencing system.
- At Bloomberg.com, Ann Woolner here discusses the Angelos case, commenting that "surely there is some point at which a sentence is so far out of whack with the crime as to be unconstitutional."
- In this column for The Nation, David Feige discusses white-collar offenses and deterrence to reach the conclusion that "it may well be that the conditions of confinement matter far more than the length of the sentence" for white-collar offenders.
- Tung Yin at his blog shares some astute views here to an on-going federal capital case in Vermont.
