Webinar: What Defense Attorneys Should Know About the Current JSIN Tool
Last year, the Commission released the Judiciary Sentencing INformation tool, or "JSIN" and described the tool as "specifically developed with the needs of judges in mind." Since JSIN's initial release, there has not only been an increase in JSIN results in presentence reports and at sentencing, but the Commission has also made significant changes to the tool. In this presentation attendees will learn how JSIN works and the data it reports (and does not report), and how the tool has changed. We will explore JSIN's capabilities and limitations and discuss how the tool may affect defense strategies at sentencing (and beyond).
