Starting a sentencing commission? Start here

As I have noted before, the amazing new blog Corrections Sentencing has an amazing series of posts about starting a sentencing commission.   A helpful reader, who happens to know a few things about sentencing commissions, has compiled the entire series in a pdf document, which can be downloaded below.  Here is this reader's assessment: "For anyone remotely interested in learning about the many benefits a good sentencing commission can provide, this document is an absolute must-read, as is the new web site."

Hi Doug,
I think there is some problem with this PDF file. It keeps crashing Adobe for me, both from Firefox and IE.

Hmm... I got it to work here. Are others having problems?

This site also keeps crashing my adobe. I can get to the first page but nothing further.

Yeah, it crashed my Adobe too.

I have Wordperfect and Word versions of both Connelly's 12-part Start-a-Sentencing- Commission series and Kim Hunt's 2-part series (So You
Want to Structure Sentencing?). I'd be
happy to upload these files to this blog (so I don't have to individually email them around), if Doug or his
people will tell me how.

It won't open. It says "error reading linearized hint data."
