Interesting sentencing commentaries
This morning I noticed a few interesting comentaries about recent sentencing developments:
- This long piece from the American Chronicle discusses "the overcrowded, overwhelmed, under-functioning, understaffed, unaccountable, out-of-control, out-of-step, and in-debt California prison system" and it laments the politicians' "lack of depth and creativity on actual prison reform."
- This piece from the Houston Chronicle discusses the Jamie Olis resentencing; it contends that what has been "[m]issing from all the sentencing guidelines, legal arguments and judicial deliberations is the calculation of the unfairness to which Olis has been subjected." It also urges a new sentence of "two years, time served [so] Olis walks out a free man."
