Federal Sentencing Reporter Issue
I've just received the February 2010 issue of the Federal Sentencing Reporter, titled "State of Emergency: The California Correctional Crisis." The articles are short and informative and are all available for download here. Among other topics, you'll find Joan Petersilia's analysis of the Schwarzenegger administration's approach to corrections, Kara Dansky's piece on a California sentencing commission, Roger Warren's commentary on probation reform, and Don Specter's comment on the effects of overcrowding. The editorial comment by Aaron Rappaport and Kara Dansky is very helpful in framing the issue. The entire thing makes for a short read and is highly recommended.
