Crimprofs Debate Apology's Sentencing Impact

On Legal Affairs, Cardozo CrimProf Richard Bierschbach and Marquette CrimProf Michael O'Hear are debating the question of whether an apology should reduce a convicted person's sentence.  "Will an apology save you from Jail" here.  Sometimes my toddler apologizes for something, and I ask her "are you really sorry or are you just saying that to get out of trouble?"  Because she knows its wrong to lie, she says "I'm just saying it."  I hope both profs agree that those sorts of apologies shouldn't count.  [Jack Chin]
