Off to DC and off-line for a while

I am about to head to the airport to fly to Washington DC to attend the US Sentencing Commission's public hearings on Blakely (details are here and here).  I hope to be able to get on-line at least briefly tonight to report on today's testimony, although I may not be able to deliver a full report until late Wednesday or Thursday.

In the meantime, note that there is plenty of Blakely reading to keep us all busy: the highlights from last month's Stanford Blakely conference; some of the written testimony submitted to the USSC; the assembled archives of recent blog posts; and, of course, the collection of Blakely Basics materials.

Readers looking for information on a particular topic should also note that the search box in the left-hand column works quite well, and the category archives are also helpful in this regard.

I'm very dissapointed in how judges sentenced defendants,In 1995 my son received life without parole because of an inhancement,This federal judge Robert Payne whom is now accused of a murder scheme,brivery,illegal jailing and book banning of an American jourlist Les Sachs,Payne was ordered immedietly impeachment but is still presiding over cases in The Supreme Court in Rich,Va. How did the state and federal officials allow these judges to step over top of the guidelines without giving judges discipline,Did you care,Now decades later you want to debate of changing the guidelines,These actions shouldn't be debated,You should respect Blakley,This seems to be a widerange of government conspiracy.You already know the majority of prisors state and federal is African Americans,This dosen't take a blind man to figure out what's going on.
