COOLEY LAW SCHOOL TO HOST TRAINING SESSION ON MICHIGAN’S NEW SENTENCING PROCEDURES

Michigan Courts to begin using risk assessment for all sentencings beginning June 1

On June 1, 2014, Michigan will begin using Correctional Offender Management Profiling for Alternative Sanctions (COMPAS) at all criminal sentencing hearings. COMPAS is a computerized assessment and case management system intended to inform sentencing discretion in terms of the rehabilitation and supervision needs of an offender in the community. Cooley Law School in collaboration with the Criminal Defense Resource Center will hold a training session for criminal defense attorneys, probation agents, prosecutors and judges to learn about the new procedure.

The training session will be conducted by Jacqueline McCann, assistant defender with the State Appellate Defender Office and author of Defender Sentencing Book.

The seminar will be held at Cooley’s Auburn Hills Campus, but live simulcasts will be available at Cooley’s campuses in Ann Arbor, Grand Rapids and Lansing. The seminar is free of charge, but since space is limited, advance registration is required. For registration information, please contact Heather Waara at hwaara@sado.org or (313) 256-9833.

WHO:              Jacqueline McCann – Assistant Defender for the State Appellate Defender Office

WHEN:            12:00 p.m. to 2 p.m., Friday, May 2, 2014
