Great weekend sentencing reading
My travels back from NY after participating in this great Booker seminar will likely take me off-line through the weekend. But, before I sign-off, I can link to two interesting new sentencing articles:
- The Original Intent of Uniformity in Federal Sentencing by Michael O'Hear
- One Cheer for United States v. Booker by Timothy Lynch
Also, I see that my latest articles, A More Perfect System: Distinguishing Offense Conduct and Offender Characteristics and Reconceptualizing Sentencing, can now be accessed via SSRN.

Good stuff in 'A More Perfect System,' Doc. I read it this weekend -- a very useful way to think about sentencing and the respective jury and judicial roles. Whither the "rehabilitative ideal," huh?

Thanks for reading and saying nice things, Scott, about the Stanford piece. I do find the offense/offender distinction quite illuminating. And I think the distinction may also help us see a few spots where the rehabilitative ideal still has some legs.
