Summary

An excellent reference tool, the book covers a range of sentencing-related topics, including the purposes of criminal sanctions, guilty pleas, rights during sentencing proceedings, ways to structure sentencing systems, community sanctions, the death penalty, Eighth Amendment constraints on sentences in noncapital cases, parole release, probation and parole revocation, and the collateral consequences of a conviction. The latter half of this helpful resource covers the constitutional rights of prisoners, the mechanics of litigating 1983 suits, and the remedies available to inmates.
