Berman aids U.S. Sentencing Commission

Douglas Berman

Douglas Berman


Professor Douglas Berman is known nationally as an expert on sentencing law, which is precisely why the U.S. Sentencing Commission recently asked him for a favor in the wake of its own website being dismantled by hackers.

Would Berman mind publishing the commission's new report on federal sentencing on his own blog?

The Sentencing Law and Policy blog maintained by Berman, the Robert J. Watkins/Procter & Gamble Professor of Law at The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law, has garnered more than 7.2 million page views since 2004. It is a resource for journalists, scholars, and even the U.S. Supreme Court.

Berman did publish the U.S. Sentencing Commission's report on Jan. 31, which found great discrepancies in sentences given to men of different races. See the entry here.
