Revolutionary Sentencing Research Tool

Equity in Sentencing Analysis System (ESAS©®) is a web-based electronic research tool that fosters equitable sentences by allowing users to search over 2 million Department of Corrections Criminal Code Score Sheets from 1998. ESAS returns Apple to Apple and Orange to Orange sentencing data containing statutes, offense levels, score-sheet points, sentence type, duration, defendant’s name, race, gender, birth date, sentencing judge and other pertinent case information. Such “Sentencing Precedent” is used to analyze prior sentences to formulate non-disparate sentences in pending cases.

Subscriptions are available from a single circuit up to all 20 for one month up to a year. Technologies for Justice also performs case by case “Custom Searches” and provides expert testimony accompanied by “Sentencing Precedent” for Contested Sentencing Hearings after lost trials and/or pursuant to Open Pleas to the Court.

Florida Bar members receive a 10% discount on all ESAS services.
