U.S. Judge: State-Based Crime Sentence Database Can Be Built Using Blockchain Technology

John J. Russo, Judge of the General Appeals Court in Kehoega County, Ohio, said: The Supreme Court of Ohio Judge Michael Donnelly and the Eighth District Court of Appeals Judge Ray Headen issued a letter calling for the establishment of a crime sentencing database in Ohio. Some questioning voices, however, suggest that Ohio courts used different computer programs in their case management systems, making it impossible to collect and share data. I think blockchain technology may be the answer to this problem. This requires a certain cost, but the blockchain can absorb data from different systems and merge them without the courts having to change their own data systems.
