SL&P annotated (thanks to Prof. Filler)
Proferssor Dan Filler, blogging over at Concurring Opinions, has a pair of terrific sentencing-related posts that follow-up on stories/documents noted here last week. Everyone should check out:
- A Defining Opinion On Federal Criminal Sentencing, which discusses the opinion in US v Saenz addressing substantial assistance departures spotlighted in this prior post.
- Drug Free Zones, Race, And Sentencing Dilution, which discusses the Justice Policy Institute's new report, "Disparity by Design: How drug-free zone laws impact racial disparity — and fail to protect youth," spotlighted in this prior post.
