News and notes on a variety of sentencing fronts
I have the great honor and pleasure to be spending the next few days in Gainsville to participate in the University of Florida Levin College of Law Criminal Justice Center's Young Scholars Conference. Consequently, blogging will be light at least for a few days.
But, even while focused mostly on other matters, I cannot help checking out some of the news headlines, and here are links to a collection of stories that all seem pretty blog-worthy:
Also via ABCNews, "Family Sues to Force Sex Offender Neighbor to Buy Its House"
From local news in Colorado, "Sponsors will push ahead with death penalty repeal despite veto threat"
From local news in Maryland, "Md medical marijuana bill picks up more support: Bill would establish commission to pick patients, facilities"
From the AP in New Hampshire, "NH House votes to prohibit privatizing prisons"
- From the AP in Texas, "With death penalty on the table, judge won't let Fort Hood suspect plead guilty"
