Abstracting Booker

This column was printed in the October 12, 2005, issue of the Valparaiso University School of Law newspaper, "The Forum."

Last term, the United States Supreme Court considered the Booker case. This opinion dealt with the sentencing scheme in criminal cases. More specifically, the confusion that has resulted in the Court's decision to declare the standing sentencing scheme unconstitutional. The coming terms will tell how this decision will affect the federal criminal justice system in the future.
