Lots of interesting sentencing stories

Yesterday's House Booker hearing (basics here and here) seems to have received remarkably little press coverage.  But there are some other interesting sentencing stories in the newspapers this morning:

Death penalty stories:

  • From California here, "State releases 32-page lethal injection procedures"

  • From Illinois here, "Is the death penalty dead in Illinois?"

  • From New Jersey here, "AG says executions are not needed to fight crime"

  • From North Carolina here, "Man put to death for '94 murder"

Sex offender sentencing stories:

  • From Alabama here and here, "Child porn nets lengthy jail term: Many sex crimes against children result in shorter sentences"

  • From Ohio here, "Prosecutor defends plea bargain for sex offender who avoided jail" and here "Sex offender sentencing puts judge on hot seat" and here "Probation not all that rare for sex offenders"
