  13. 13. Practice Paraphrasing<br />Text<br />The General Assembly should act to allow judges to impose capital punishment without requiring all 12 jurors to agree on death. All 12 should agree on guilt, but the penalty phase should be a simple recommendation to the judge who could impose the appropriate penalty (Wooten). <br />Decision on Punishment<br />The state government should make a law so that judges can decide the death penalty without 12 jurors agreeing. The jurors should all agree the criminal is guilty, but the final punishment should be left up to the judge (Wooten).<br /><ul><li>Read the text to the right.
