Run-on Sentencing By Gerald Shargel

There's a new Slate article out there. The concluding paragraph says:

The future of criminal sentences may not be all that bright. A conservative Congress may respond with draconian mandatory minimum sentences that make defendants pine for the bad old days of the guidelines. But at least for now, trial by jury has resumed its rightful place as the bedrock of our constitutional justice system.

Tomorrow, we may get a hint about that.

The author is Gerald Shargel who has represented many high-profile clients, including John Gotti. He is a practitioner in residence at Brooklyn Law School, where he also teaches. (From Slate)
