Around the blogosphere

If you are in a surfing mood, here are items worth checking out:

  • CrimProfBlog has this post reporting on a state sentencing innovation: "Isanti County Judge James Dehn ... dispenses justice on the installment plan. Instead of giving drunken drivers a traditional jail sentence, he spreads that sentence out over years, jailing them in July and December.  Before each jail term, drivers must appear in court.  If they can convince Dehn they've been sober, employed and otherwise reformed, he can allow them to skip the month in jail — until the next time."
  • Karl Keys at Capital Defense Weekly has this review of a notable and peculiar death penalty ruling from the New Jersey Supreme Court.
  • The WSJ's Law Blog has lots of coverage of Ken Lay's sudden and surprising death.
  • And I have started a guest-blogging stint at PrawfBlawg with this post about SCOTUS error correction.

Not to be overly callous, but I am honestly wondering whether Skilling is thinking that Lay may have taken the easy way out. One thing is for sure, Lay will now meet his maker as an "innocent" man. Though I doubt such a legal technicality would carry much weight before the true Supreme Court.
