Reports from the ABA Commission on Effective Criminal Sanctions

As noted by CrimProf here, American Bar Association's Commission on Effective Criminal Sanctions has recently produced a series of reports with recommendations on various topics.  This ABA webpage provides more background and links.  All the reports are linked here, and they cover:

  1. alternatives to incarceration and conviction
  2. improvements in parole and probation supervision
  3. employment and licensure of convicted persons
  4. access to and use of criminal records for non-law enforcement purposes
  5. representation relating to collateral consequences
  6. training in the exercise of discretion

All the reports make for interesting reads, but sentencing fans should be especially intrigued by Report I on Alternatives to Incarceration, Report II on Improvements in Probation and Parole, and Report VI on Training in the Exercise of Discretion.
