Editorial: Prison Progress

Publication Date: 
June 10, 2007
Sacramento Bee

The current progress in California prison reform is the subject of this Sacramento Bee editorial. Executive Director of the Stanford Criminal Justice Center and Lecturer in Law Kara Dansky is quoted:

... As Kara Dansky of the Stanford Criminal Justice Center has said: "Sentencing commissions are not in the business of seizing power from their states' legislatures or of promulgating sentencing rules in secret. Sentencing commissions are open and transparent, and can be enormously helpful for any state legislature interested in devising sound sentencing policy."
