The state of sentencing in Oregon
Oregon Circuit Court Judge Michael Marcus, who has this fascinating site supporting his "Smart Sentencing" Project, was reported that Oregon has its newly revised "Criminal Benchbook" on the Oregon courts' public site here. Judge Marcus has these interesting comments about this interesting resource:
The benchbook is 1160 pages, pdf format, searchable, hyperlinked in the table of contents [and elsewhere], and also navigable by the usual Adobe Reader tools. Unique, and uniquely vetted by the Criminal Law Committee of the Oregon Judicial Conference [no other portion was deemed controversial], are the first 30 pages of the Sentencing chapter, which notes current sentencing issues and provides practical suggestions for smart sentencing analysis -- all beginning at page 727.
I have quickly scanned the sentencing chapter of the benchbook, and it makes for an interesting read.
