Topless guidelines bill in the works from Sensenbrenner
I have now heard from two different sources that House Judiciary Chair James Sensenbrenner intends to introduce a bill mandating topless guidelines, and that there will be a hearing concerning the solution to the post-Booker sentencing problems that he identifies sometime in early May. My impression from the House hearing earlier this month was that most of the witnesses did a powerful job urging Congress to leave Booker alone for now, but apparently Sensenbrenner was unconvinced. Needless to say, this is a story to watch, and the links below provide plenty of background.

Professor Berman: I've looked as best I can through your awesome blog (I truly don't know how you do this), but haven't found anything on plea bargaining practices in light of Booker. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
