Lots of interesting news, notes and commentary as the calendar turns

This time of year always seems busy and dynamic on various fronts, and one manifestation of this reality is my in-box getting way too full of way too many interesting sentencing-related items to blog about at length.  So, to cover lots of ground too quickly, here is a list of links (in no particular order) to pieces that have caught my eye this week:

From Newt Gingrich and Pat Nolan at Fox News here, "Opioid deaths are a health crisis -- Treatment, not jail, is the cure"

From the Collateral Consequences Resource Center here, "Michigan sex offender registration law held unconstitutional"

From Emily Nagisa Keehn and J. Wesley Boyd at The Conversation here, "How mass incarceration harms U.S. health, in 5 charts"

From John Gramlich at Pew Research Center here, "5 facts about crime in the U.S."

From Laura Bogart at The Week here, "Why our true crime obsession is bad for society"

From the Oregon Council on Civil Rights here, "Youth and Measure 11 in Oregon: Impacts of Mandatory Minimums"

From Michelle Phelps at The Crime Report here, "The Lesson of Meek Mill: A Probation System ‘Set Up to Fail’"

From Colin Miller at Evidence Prof Blog here, "Cyntoia Brown & the "51-To-Life" Project: Final Report"
