Justices Agree to Consider Sentencing
By LYLE DENNISTON

WASHINGTON, Aug. 2 - The Supreme Court on Monday agreed to rule on the constitutionality of the guidelines for federal criminal sentences.

The court set a hearing for the afternoon of opening day of the justices' new term, Oct. 4, to review two appeals by the Justice Department. "
