Abstract

This report, prepared for the United States District Court of Massachusetts (Boston) describes the development of a decision support tool, the Sentencing Information System, for use by federal judges during the sentencing phase of criminal cases. We researched the sentencing process through interviews with judges, clerks, probation officers, and technical staff. Based upon these findings, we created a prototype of a new tool designed to fulfill the judges' need for easily accessible information.
