Sentencing around the blogosphere
Moving this afternoon around the blogosphere (which I used to call the blogsphere), I see a number of very interesting sentencing items:
- Grits for Breakfast has this post which provides a fascinating account and fantastic analysis of a county DA's decision to enter into a plea agreement reducing capital murder charges in a high-profile local case based in part on the DA's "own religious views about redemption and the value of life."
- TalkLeft here and the White Collar Crime Prof Blog here are discussing the latest sentencing of a WorldCom defendant.
- Criminal Appeal has this post noting a state bill "which would create a moratorium on executions in California until the California Commission on the Fair Administration of Justice reveals its findings on wrongful convictions and other problems in California's criminal justice system."
- The Legal Theory Blog here notes a new article by Professor Kathleen Brickey, with the lovely title Mostly Martha, which includes a section exploring whether Martha Stewart's sentence was appropriate.
- The ACSBlog is buzzing here about Judge Lynn Adelman's recent opinion on federal mandatory minimum sentences (detailed here).
