International Sentencing Practices: Implications for Reducing U.S. Use of Prisons

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In attempt to find sentencing practices that will reduce the use of incarceration as well as satisfy concerns about public safety, international sentencing practices are analyzed. Sentencing goals, historical sentencing reforms, and typical current sentences from England, the Netherlands, France, Spain and Chile are presented. Data were collected from interviews of judges and attorneys in these countries as well as official documents such as sentencing guidelines. Analysis of both Common Law and Roman Law traditions suggest multiple practices that might be acceptable for adopting in the U.S., including: increased use of pardons, decrease emphasis of prior criminal history, increase use of lay personnel in sentencing, non-criminal justice response to drug use, and short community sentences for all non-violent offenders.
