Tioga, ND asked in Criminal Law for North Dakota

Q: Looking for information concerning sentencing

Is there somewhere a person can look up a particular judge's rulings in order to try to ascertain how he might rule in a similar case? I have a loved one awaiting sentencing and we'd like to try to be a little prepared regarding what to expect, if possible. I realize that several factors are involved in the final sentencing, but still, I'm curious. IS there an archive or online library somewhere accessible to the public regarding outcomes of rulings other than the Supreme Court level?Thanks!

A: I guess the best thing to do is to talk with a local criminal defense attorney who has known the judge for many years.
