A blog report on USSC alternatives symposium

I am please to see and report on this post from Kent Scheidegger at C&C reporting on the (now concluded) United States Sentencing Commission's symposium on alternatives to incarceration.  According to Kent, the USSC will be making sure lots of that materials from the symposium (and transcripts) will be available to the public.  I hope so, since I have not see a single word in the MSM about these event, and so only true criminal justice geeks who always check out ussc.gov may ever know that this importance conference even happened.

A WSJ reporter was there, but I haven't seen anything in that paper. Didn't make the cut, I guess.

I am a criminal defense attorney in Los Angeles, California and I wanted to attend the symposium but was unable to secure a last minute invite...I hope the materials become available soon.
