Product Description

Four leading sentencing scholars have produced the first and only text with enough up-to-date material to support a full course or seminar on sentencing. The chapters in Sentencing Law and Policy: Cases, Statutes, and Guidelines present examples from three distinct types of sentencing guideline-determinate, and capital. The materials draw on the full spectrum of legal institutions, from the U.S. Supreme Court to the state court level, with close consideration of the role of legislatures and sentencing commissions. The only current, full-course text on sentencing, this title offers:
An "intuitive", conceptually-based organization that looks at the essential substantative components and procedural steps following the sequence of decisions that typically occurs in every criminal sentencing;
Examples covering three distinct areas of sentencing, with chapter materials based on guideline-determinate, indeterminate, and capital sentencing;
Materials from a range of institutions, including decision from the U.S. Supreme Court, state high courts, federal appellate courts, and some foreign jurisdictions - along with statutes and guideline provisions, and reports from various sentencing commissions and agencies;
In-text notes on sentencing policies that explain common practices in U.S. jurisdictions, then ask students to compare different institutional practices and consider the relationship between sentencing rules, politics, and the broader aims of criminal justice.
