Special JRP issue on "Sentencing and Corrections in the States"

Cover-medium I am pleased to be able to report on and promote a the Special Issue on Sentencing and Corrections in the States that was just published by the Justice Research and Policy and it available via this link. Here is how this issue is summarized by the folks at JRP:

This special issue of JRP contains seven articles by leading researchers that examine sentencing and incarceration practices across the United States, with a focus on state issues and practices: 

  • A National Overview offer strategies for reducing the correctional population across the country as a whole.
  • State Focus articles provide in-depth looks at corrections policies and practices in Florida, Pennsylvania, New York, Texas, and California. 
  • A final Commentary discusses the issues highlighted by these articles and offers insights into present and future U.S. sentencing and corrections practices.

Based on my own quick skim, it appears that every one of the seven articles in this special issue is a must read.
