FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Louisiana Judicial College in conjunction with the Louisiana Department of Corrections and the Louisiana Sentencing Commission, is presenting a training on Evidenced-Based Sentencing Practices: Purposeful Sentencing. The training is open to judges and probation and parole officers and will be held Friday, December 5, 2014, at the Second Circuit Court of Appeal in Shreveport, 8:00 A.M. - 4:30 P.M. Second Circuit Court of Appeal. Judges Brady O’Callaghan and John D. Mosley, Jr. coordinated the Shreveport training and serve as the program chairs and moderators.


According to Cheney Joseph, Director of the Louisiana Judicial College, “This will be the last in a series of regional trainings made possible through a grant from the VERA Institute for Justice. VERA’s goal is to make justice systems fairer and more effective through research and innovation.”


Evidence-based sentencing uses research and science to enhance the decision-making ability of criminal justice stakeholders in the selection and application of fair, proportionate and effective sanctioning.  The trainings are led by volunteer members of the judiciary, judicial staff and employees of the Department of Corrections. Previous trainings have been presented in Lake Charles, Alexandria, Baton Rouge and New Orleans.


For more information about the training on Evidence-Based Sentencing Practices: Purposeful Sentencing, please contact the Louisiana Judicial College at 225.578.8825.
