Sunday morning sentencing blog reading
Once you have your morning cup of jo', be sure to check of these interesting sentencing items from around the blogsphere:
- Grits for Breakfast has this post which details that the "Texas Legislature's rejection of most prison-sentence-increase bills this session staved off $1 billion in new prison spending by the end of the decade.
- The PRACDL Blog has this extended post discussing the First Circuit's recent Wilkerson decision which, as detailed here, seems to endorse post-Booker consideration of disparities between state and federal sentencing schemes.
- The Ninth Circuit Blog has this detailed post providing a "BOP Litigation Update" that begins by stating that a "chronic frustration in federal criminal defense is the Bureau of Prisons's tendency to increase the length of sentences after the prison door clangs shut."
