Around the blogosphere
Lots of interesting sentencing stuff around the blogosphere:
- SCOTUSblog has great previews of the two capital cases the Supreme Court will be hearing tomorrow, Oregon v. Guzek (No. 04–928) and Kansas v. Marsh (No. 04–1170).
- Grits for Breakfast has this fascinating post discussing "allegations that the Denton County District Attorney's office traded lenient sentences in exchange for uncontested asset forfeiture cases against drug dealers."
- TalkLeft discusses here a case in which Miami cop "turned down a plea offer with probation and no jail time on charges he had sex with a 14 year old enrolled in a police teen program" and then, after being "convicted of three counts of lewd and lascivious conduct on a child," was sentenced "to 20 years in prison to be followed by 15 years of probation."
- And, thanks to How Appealing, I see that the AP has this article discussing capital clemency and the Tookie Williams case.
