This victims' rights blog's posts often focus on events or policies that interfere with the swift meting out of criminal justice measures. They also cover criminal cases before the U.S. Supreme court and studies with public policy implications related to criminal justice.

Author: Posts come from legal director and general counsel Kent Scheidegger and others affiliated with the Criminal Justice Legal Foundation in Sacramento, Calif., including Bill Otis, an adjunct law professor at Georgetown University Law Center. The CJLF's stated purpose "is to assure that people who are guilty of committing crimes receive swift and certain punishment in an orderly and constitutional manner."
