The Death Penalty in California

by Lucas Eaves, published

In November, California voters rejected the abolition of the death penalty by voting against Proposition 34. However, advocacy groups are fighting to keep the conversation going about the death penalty in California and inform the public of the cost to taxpayers.

The California Innocence Project (CIP), a law school clinical program at California Western School of Law in San Diego, is dedicated to releasing wrongfully convicted inmates. The CIP also created the following infographic that highlights some facts about the death penalty such as costs, the number of death row inmate by state, and the history of the death penalty in the United States.
