Lots of sentencing around the blogosphere

The federal defender blogs (which are assembled here), as well as many other favorites, have a number of sentencing items that merit a look:

  • At the Sixth Circuit Blog, Nikki Pierce is here encouraging "Booker brainstorming" among criminal defense lawyers "to share our ideas in a group effort to do the best job we can for our clients."

  • At the Ninth Circuit Blog, Steve Sady here draws "several important lessons" from the recent Thompson case from the Fourth Circuit (noted here).

  • At Criminal Appeal, Jonathan Soglin explains here how the California Supreme Court on Wednesday cleaned up its Blakely docket by resolving over 100 Blakely-related cases.

  • At PrawfsBlawg, Dan Markel provides here a snippet of his recent article, State, Be Not Proud: A Retributivist Defense of the Commutation of Death Row and the Abolition of the Death Penalty.

  • At CrimLaw, Ken Lammers discusses here his views about punishment as a deterrent.

  • At Grits for Breakfast, Scott Henson has here a great run-down of many interesting criminal law and sentencing items.

  • At White Collar Crime Prof Blog, Ellen Podgor notes and comments here on the granting of bail pending appeal to Bernie Ebbers.
