Ben, look closely -- it allows CX because it moves the allocution to BEFORE the sentence is imposed, not after. In which case, the defendant must be given the opportunity to confront witnesses against him, mustn't he?

This is a bill from TAASA (advocates for sex assault survivors) who want survivors to have more "say" in the disposition of those cases that are plea bargained. People can decide for themselves whether that's a good or bad thing, but if you move it up, I don't see how you can't give the defendant the right to CX. Correct me if I'm wrong ...
