This is one of several joint papers by the authors on criminal justice institutions and politics; the ordering of names reflects a principle of rotation. We wish to thank the Institution for Social and Policy Studies at Yale and the Criminal Justice Research Center at The Ohio State University (where Gordon served as assistant professor of political science in the beginning stages of this project) for their generous financial support. We also gratefully acknowledge Brandon Bartels, Kevin Eirich, and Shaun Holness for superlative research assistance and Paul Brace, Larry Baum, Laura Langer, Todd Lochner, Deborah Schildkraut, and three anonymous reviewers for valuable comments. Earlier drafts of this article were presented in seminars at Columbia, George Washington, Northwestern, NYU, Princeton, and Yale where we received additional constructive feedback. Finally, we would like to express our gratitude to the staff of the Pennsylvania Commission on Sentencing for providing us with (and answering questions about) the sentencing data employed in this analysis.
