Report on Connecticut Death Penalty

CJLF has released a report examining the death penalty in Connecticut and the claims made by those proposing repeal. The report finds that capital cases in Connecticut are remarkably free of the problems that prompted repeal in Illinois. The report also addresses claims that death penalty prosecutions in the state are racially biased and that repeal of the death penalty would result in substantial savings of tax dollars. Both claims are found to be unsupported by solid evidence.

Press release is here.
