New Edition of Introduction to Federal Sentencing Released

The Western District of Texas Federal Defender has announced the release of a new edition of their very helpful Introduction to Federahttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifl Sentencing. The Thirteenth Edition is current through the Supreme Court's last term, the Sentencing Commission's latest amendments, and AG Holder's decision to agree to retroactive application of the FSA.

New to this edition are a small section on the child pornography guidelines and a section at the end summarizing each of the Supreme Court's post-Booker cases on the advisory guidelines system. I have also added internal bookmarks and hyperlinks to allow readers to navigate around the document more easily when reading it online.
