There’s an article on Law.com this morning entitled “Survey Reveals Little Change in Sentencing Habits After ‘Booker’,” which is going to be interesting to some.
--- and the Sentencing Commission has a new “Post-Booker Sentencing Update” posted, prepared using data extracted as of July 12, 2005.
Also, there are two days left to make public comments to the U.S. Sentencing Commission on proposed amendments to the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.
“Notice of proposed amendments was published in the Federal Register on February 23, 2005 (see 70 FR 8868). The Commission held a public hearing on the proposed amendments in Washington, D.C., on April 12, 2005. On April 29, 2005, the Commission submitted these amendments to Congress and specified an effective date of November 1, 2005.”
