Fascinating dispatches from Missouri
The newspapers in the Show Me state this morning have a lot to show folks who are interested in sentencing issues:
- This article provides a thoughtful exploration of the new advisory guideline system in operation in Missouri. Prior coverage of Missouri's interesting new guideline system can be found here and here.
- This article has an interesting report on Missouri Professor Frank Bowman's work with Judge Alito on the Constitution Project's Sentencing Initiative. More coverage of this important aspect of Alito's background can be found in this post and this follow-up.
- This article discusses a recent report showing that Missouri's public defender system is "in crisis" as the state "ranks 47th in public defense funding, and caseloads are soaring 80 percent above standard."
