Notable California discussions of sentencing reform
California's interesting Little Hoover Commission, an "independent state oversight agency," has been conducting hearings this summer on sentencing reform. This webpage provides links to the agendas: a June hearing, detailed here, covered national and California sentencing reform from a broad perspective; an August hearing, detailed here, was particularly focused on the importance of establishing a permanent sentencing commission in California.
There is a lot of interesting information for sentencing fans linked at these pages. I was especially intrigued by this report from Kara Dansky, the Executive Director of the Stanford Criminal Justice Center. Along with the report, the Stanford CJ Center submitted an impressive state-by-state annotated review of state sentencing commissions.
