Apr 14: Death of the Death Penalty in CT
Apr 14th, 2012 by Sam

Audio coming soon…

Hope you can join us for The Samantha Clemens Show Saturday morning at 10 am EDT on AM1510 in Boston, streaming live at www.samanthaclemens.com.

Guest:   Professor James Alan Fox, Northeastern University criminology professor AND Boston.com Community Voices blogger

Connecticut’s legislature has voted to abolish the death penalty in the Nutmeg state and George Zimmerman has been charged with 2nd degree murder in the Sunshine State….

But what are the ramifications?

Connecticut has only has one execution since 1976, will it make a difference? In the last few years a number of states have voted to abolish the penalty…will the trend continue?

 

  • Was Mr. Zimmermann “overcharged” or “undercharged”?
  • Is the second degree murder charge appropriate? Would have even been charged if there wasn’t such a national outcry?
  • What about life without parole for juvenile offenders??

Join Samantha on as she welcomes Professor James Alan Fox!

The two will discuss these legal topics and more.
