A partner with a Rockville, Md., firm has been reappointed as a commissioner with the Maryland State Commission on Criminal Sentencing Policy, the firm announced on Tuesday.
Richard Finci, with Houlon, Berman, Bergman, Finci, Levenstein & Skok, will serve his third consecutive term on the commission, which makes recommendations about Maryland’s sentencing guidelines.
Finci, a criminal defense attorney who represents clients in Maryland and Washington, D.C., said in a press release he was pleased to accept the reappointment. “I will continue to work to the best of my ability to ensure that sentencing in Maryland is just and proportionate,” he said.
Formed in 1999, the 19-person commission was created to ensure fairness in criminal sentencing and to foster a public understanding of the sentencing process. The commission oversees the state’s sentencing guidelines, monitors sentencing practices, adopts changes to the guidelines and provides training for practitioners.
