Missouri Sentencing Advisory Commission's Importance is Downgraded

Posted by RCaldwell on May 30, 2012

A comment on the recent move by the legislature to take the importance out of the Missouri Sentencing Advisory COmmission.

According to the Missouri Lawyers Weekly issue from May 28, 2012, the Missouri Legislature, on May 18, 2012 approved a bill that eliminates the Missouri Sentencing Advisory Commission's mandate to recommend sentences and publish a report every two years.

The measure was backed by the Missouri Association of Prosecuting Attorneys.

If you are not aware, the Missouri Sentencing Advisory Commission, based on the facts of a case, would compare those facts with other similar cases throughout Missouri and recommend to a judge the most frequent sentence given for that particular case.  The recommendations are merely that and are never binding.

The fact that prosecutors oppose this commission is a clear indication that they do not want the judicial system to communicate with itself across the  state concerning types of crimes in certain factual scenarios.  This bill is a tragedy, and you should remember this on voting day.

Remember, you are not voting to make the lives of criminals easier as prosecutors will claim; you are voting for punishment to fit the crime and for uniformity in sentences.  All citizens have the right to a fair and impartial judicial system.

Barack Hussein Obama, as an "organizer," seems to attract fisacsts of all sorts, including those who are supposed to enforce the law. Jennifer Joyce and Bob McCulloch and the Obama campaign, besides acting like Chicago thugs, are threatening free speech under color of law. These people are truly dangerous and should be investigated. The Missouri Bar Association needs to be contacted about this.Perhaps the Justice Department needs to be called in as well, as these people are threatening citizens' civil rights - not unusual for an ACORN community organizer.

Greetings, I live in Napoleon, Ohio and was googling for pthoos taken on Flag Day here in town when I came across your blog mentioning Bob Heft. He died recently, but our community greatly benefited from his enthusiasm for the flag he designed and his dedication to making our community a better place. He served as mayor of Napoleon for several terms. Just wanted to say hello and thank you for mentioning some recent and true flag history! Our Elk's Lodge holds an annual Flag Day Ceremony telling of the history of the flags our country has had. We're proud that one of those flags was born here!

Thanks for the suggestion and I will aopaprch my technical administrator on how to proceed. I have your email address and will certainly let you know when we incorporate a forum aopaprch versus our current blog structure. Take note, the best percentages are yet to come. Week 1 was about breakeven, Week 2 was a profit, winning at 58% of the point spreads plus a solid profit on the money line. Good luck, and again, thanks for the suggestion. http://nqigvgsw.com [url=http://ifusuwx.com]ifusuwx[/url] [link=http://aytnqu.com]aytnqu[/link]

19/09/2012I think that a property fceorlosure can have a important effect on the borrower's life. Real estate fceorlosures can have a Several to 10 years negative influence on a client's credit report. A new borrower who has applied for a mortgage or any loans even, knows that the actual worse credit rating is, the more complicated it is to acquire a decent bank loan. In addition, it could possibly affect the borrower's capacity to find a decent place to let or hire, if that results in being the alternative houses solution. Good blog post. http://tbhkarql.com [url=http://ooemfhzqhtq.com]ooemfhzqhtq[/url] [link=http://exxpavpvn.com]exxpavpvn[/link]

that, permit me inrofm you just what exactly did work. Your text is quite persuasive and this is possibly why I am making an effort to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, despite the fact that I can certainly notice the jumps in reason you come up with, I am not necessarily confident of just how you seem to unite the ideas which in turn produce the actual final result. For now I shall subscribe to your issue however wish in the future you link the facts much better.
