Great new pieces in Akron Law Review's criminal justice reform issue

In the production of this recent post discussing a plea bargaining article by an Ohio Supreme Court Justice, I discovered that the current issue of the Akron Law Review is all about criminal justice reform with a set of articles all on topics that ought to be of interest to sentencing fans.  Here are the main articles from this issue:

"Sentencing by Ambush: An Insider's Perspective on Plea Bargaining Reform" by Justice Michael P. Donnelly

"The Continuing and Unlawful Exclusion of Qualified Ex-Offenders from Jury Service in Ohio" by Jordan Berman

"Life After Sentence of Death: What Becomes of Individuals Under Sentence of Death After Capital Punishment Legislation is Repealed or Invalidated" by James R. Acker and Brian W. Stull
