Around the blogosphere

Lots of interesting sentencing stuff around the blogosphere:

  • 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."
