A debate over the death penalty is expected to return to Utah’s Capitol Hill during the next legislative session. We could see a bill to abolish it all together, and another one to speed up the process. I sat down with Robert Dunham this morning, he’s the Executive Director of the Death Penalty Information Center, to give us a look at the possible legislative pieces we could see next year.
Dunham wanted to be clear that the Information Center takes no stance on the death penalty. Their focus is ensuring the death penalty is administered properly.
