Life After 'Booker': Insights From Federal Sentencing Data

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Following the Supreme Court’s landmark 2005 decision in United States v. Booker, which transformed the United States Sentencing Guidelines from mandatory to advisory, the question of how sentencing judges would exercise their restored discretion has been a matter of great interest. In our latest New York Law Journal article, “Life After Booker: Insights From Federal Sentencing Data,” we highlight insights from recent sentencing statistics and conclude that the data support the continuation of welcome trends: district courts exercising their restored discretion to tailor sentences individually, with increased regional differences and courts in the Second Circuit taking a leading role in mitigating the excessive harshness of the fraud guidelines.

Best Regards,

Rich Albert and Bob Anello
