Bostic publishes warning about sentencing

Saturday, February 27th, 2010

In the November 26, 2009 issue of Ingham County Legal News, J. Nicholas Bostic warned criminal law practitioners about a new source of criminal history information being used by probation departments. The source is called the Judicial Data Warehouse (JDW) and it searches all of the many independent court databases in Michigan. The name “matching” process is questionable and the system does not rely on fingerprinting at all. Bostic warns practitioners that much of this information can be incorrect and lead to higher and unwarranted scores in theĀ sentencing process.
