Lots of new goodies from the USSC

Just in time for a Masterful weekend, the US Sentencing Commission has this set of exciting new items posted on its official website:

  • Public Comment on Proposed Amendments to the Sentencing Guidelines: The Commission received comment from the judiciary, the executive branch, members of the defense bar, and interested organizations in response to its request for public comment on proposed amendments to the sentencing guidelines (see 73 FR 4931).  The public comment is accessible through this link.
  • April 2008 Preliminary Post-Kimbrough/Gall Data Report: A updated set of tables presenting preliminary data on fiscal year 2008 cases sentenced on or after December 10, 2008. The numbers are prepared using data received, coded, and edited by the Commission by April 8, 2008 (available here).

I am especially exciting to consume the latest, greatest post-Kimbrough/Gall data, though I am hopeful Sunday in Augusta will have my attention a bit more than sentencing data this weekend.
