Lots of interesting sentencing stories in the papers

The morning news reports are teeming with items of interest on mostly capital sentencing topics.  Here's a sampling:

  • From the AP here, "Studies Say Death Penalty Deters Crime"
  • From FoxNews here, "States Weigh Punishing Child Rapists With Death"
  • From the New York Times here, "Libby's Supporters Who Wrote to Judge Learn That Letters Take on New Life on the Web"

UPDATE:  Kent at Crime & Consequences has this lengthy post about the AP piece on death penalty deterrence studies.
