The new fifth edition of Sentencing Law & Policy: Cases, Statutes, and Guidelines gives students a comprehensive overview of modern sentencing practices in all major types of systems: determinate and indeterminate, discretionary, and structured, federal and state, capital and non-capital. Authored by leading scholars in the fields of sentencing and criminal procedure, this casebook surveys the legal doctrine and depicts major sentencing institutions at work, including legislatures, commissions, judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys, probation officers, parole boards, and others. The book motivates students to connect legal practices with current policy and equity debates that reshape criminal sentencing. The new edition includes extensive materials on emerging topics like the work of progressive prosecutors, the use of risk assessment tools, and the impacts of the COVID pandemic.

New to the Fifth Edition:

  • Thoroughly updated to address important statutory and case law changes, including important new legislation, such as the FIRST STEP Act, leading U.S. Supreme Court, U.S. Court of Appeals, state appellate court decisions, and prominent recent scholarship.
  • Coverage of modern policy issues, including mass incarceration, prosecutorial and judicial discretion, punishment for drug crimes, revised federal and state sentencing guidelines, and concerns about racial and other disparities in sentencing.
  • Additions give focused attention to new topics of particular interest to sentencing advocates and practitioners such as the policies of progressive prosecutors, the development and use of risk assessment tools at sentencing, and the impacts of the COVID pandemic on sentencing and corrections. A new final chapter considers sentencing review doctrines and pays special attention to new laws and advocacy surrounding “second look” sentencing mechanisms. It also questions the role of executive clemency in the criminal system.
