Innocence, private prisons, overly punitive sex-offender laws, and more

Just a few items I wanted to point out from other sources:

First, sorry to see Paul Kennedy put his fine blog, The Defense Rests, on hiatus. He had great posts there regularly right up to the end. Paul, good luck with all you've got on your plate. Your blog will be missed. I hope you decide to pick it up again someday.

I checked in at Texas Monthly's website for the first time in a while and was pleased to find three innocence-related items on their home page, a couple of which I'd linked to in roundups before:
With Michael Hall, Pam Colloff and Nate Blakeslee on staff, one would expect TM to be strong in this area and they consistently are. Good stuff.
Texas Prison Bidness also has some notable new posts:
And here's some good stuff from Doug Berman's Sentencing Law & Policy blog:
Finally, read Jim Schutze and Steve Blow from the Dallas Observer and Dallas Morning News, respectively, on counter-productively punitive sex offender residency restrictions.

More from me later, perhaps - lots of writing to do today.

The less sex registration, the less sex offending.
