Record #:
The Institute of Government recently completed a study that assessed the effects of North Carolina's new determinate sentencing law, the Fair Sentencing Act, which was intended to reduce unjustified variation in felony sentences and to make sentences more predictable, but not necessarily more severe. This article outlines the Act and the experience of the first year of the Act.
