Former Judge Martin talked about the state of federal sentencing guidelines. Nineteen months ago he resigned his lifetime appointment to the federal bench because he said Congress had put so many strictures on criminal sentencing that judges no longer had any reasonable authority. In January of this year, the Supreme Court struck down mandatory sentencing guidelines and gave judges back much of the sentencing discretion they had lost. Judge Martin is in DC today with a number of former U.S. attorneys and judges asking Congress to move slowly and let the Court decision stand. He responded to audience telephone calls, faxes and electronic mail. close
