Lots of interesting sentencing headlines

Though I have found relatively little press coverage of the Booker brouhaha, there are many other interesting sentencing stories in the papers today.  Of course, developments in the federal death penalty case against Zacarias Moussaoui is getting lots of attention, and How Appealing has media links here and also notes this FindLaw essay by Edward Lazarus entitled "The Moussaoui Trial: It's High Time The Death Penalty Is Taken Off the Table."  In addition, sentencing fans may be interested in some of these other stories from around the country:

  • From California here, "RFK's Convicted Killer Denied Parole Again"

  • From Connecticut here, "Ganim eyes reduction in sentence"

  • From Florida here, "Judge decides that girl's killer should die"

  • From North Carolina here, "Lawyers seek stay of execution for N.C. man set to die Friday"

  • From Ohio here, "Sentence in sex case puts judge under spotlight"
