    Sentenced will not deter bribery any more than sentences deter bank robbery. But I for one would not want to go back to the good old days of strict application of the guidelines. The reality of that system was that judges who wanted to throw the book at someone and send a message could do so pretty easily but judges who genuinely believed that the accused was not deserving of a disproportionally harsh sentence could almost nothing. Given the likelihood that we will see more prosecutions invoking the Park doctrine, I am grateful that we have judges have the opportunity to ameliorate such harsh outcomes.
