Default Important and timely new paper on judicial sentence modification and early release

Important and timely new paper on judicial sentence modification and early release

Thus coming Tuesday, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in important "back end" sentencing cases: Dillon v. US (09-6338) and Barber v. Thomas (09-5201). Though I will preview these cases in some coming posts, both cases raise questions about the role of judges and the procedures used to modify sentences and provide for early release from imposed prison terms. Given these SCOTUS plans, this new piece on SSRN from Cecelia Klingele is a timely must-read. The piece is titled "Changing the Sentence Without Hiding the Truth: Judicial Sentence Modification as a Promising Method of Early Release


This would be nice ...

NJ just passed a law, effective in July, that all inmates (except for certain sex offenses) will be released on parole at least 6 months prior to their max out date, even they refused parole or were previously denied.
There are other things in the bill too that will help out the inmates too.
It's A4202 and was signed into law during the 2008-2009 session.

Is this similar to what these hearings are about?

On the NJ legisture page under bill A4202. Also change the session dates to 2008-2009. The bill will be there for you to read in detail.
The boxes for this information to fill in on the right hand side of the page.

or here
http://www.judiciary.state.nj.us/legis/330.pdf

The only difference is recenty they admended the bill to take effect in July 2010. Nothing else was changed.

Question: Let's say my b/f got out on parole in January. Then he had dirty urine a few days later and was sent to a Halfway Back for 180 Days. Then he screws up again and they send him back to prison. Can he still get off parole 6 months prior to his max date? Max date is April 17 2011.
