Sentencing Commissions and Guidelines By the Numbers

September 26, 2017

The Robina Institute of Criminal Law and Criminal Justice is pleased to present Sentencing Commissions and Guidelines By the Numbers: Cross-Jurisdictional Comparisons Made Easy by the Sentencing Guidelines Resource Center, by Kelly Lyn Mitchell, Executive Director of the Robina Institute.

Sentencing Commissions and Guidelines By the Numbers provides an overview of the Robina Institute's online resource, the Sentencing Guideline Resource Center (SGRC). The publication explains how the SGRC functions and provides an overview of the kind of cross-jurisdictional comparisons that can now be made as a result of our research. Each of these comparisons can be used to discover structural variations and different practices of sentencing guidelines systems, and provide answers to key policy questions.
