In 1980, the legislature set up the Sentencing
Commission, which has established rules for sentencing criminals—grading the crime and
assigning penalties. It determines the sentence
based on an offense gravity score and a prior
record score. In addition, there are now mandatory
minimums. If a judge sentences someone outside
the norm in either direction, mitigating or
aggravating, he must write a clear defense of his
decision and is subject to appeal. Only 5% of all
criminal cases go to trial currently. Through plea
bargaining with the district attorney, 95% of cases
are decided, which means that effectively the
district attorney’s office is doing the trying and judging, not the elected judges, according to Sprecher.
