  • 4. What is Capital Punishment? What is the “Death Penalty”?
  • 6. Death Penalty • Capital Punishment / Death Penalty - Defined Capital punishment, also known as the death penalty, is a state- sanctioned practice of killing a person as a punishment for a crime. The sentence ordering that an offender is to be punished in such a manner is known as a death sentence. The act of carrying out the sentence is known as an execution. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capital_punishment
  • 7. Death Penalty Stats • How Many States in U.S. Use Capital Punishment? 27 (2021) Gender/Sex on Death Row in U.S. – 97.9% male (2020) Race – 40% Black (2020) State with most executions – Since 1976 - Texas https://www.statista.com/topics/5923/death-penalty-in-the-united-states/#topicOverview
  • 8. • Death Penalty Death Penalty in Texas Texas Procedure Generally In Texas, the district courts have original jurisdiction for all criminal felony cases. If an individual is convicted of a capital felony, he or she may be subject to punishment by death, if the State is seeking death penalty/capital punishment. A capital felony is one in which an individual "intentionally or knowingly causes the death of an individual," under “special circumstances”. https://tarlton.law.utexas.edu/texas-death-penalty
  • 9. • Death Penalty Death Penalty in Texas Texas Procedure Generally A capital felony is one in which an individual "intentionally or knowingly causes the death of an individual," under special circumstances. In particular, the following are “special circumstances”: •murder of a public safety officer or firefighter in the line of duty; •murder during the commission of specified felonies (kidnapping, burglary, robbery, aggravated rape, arson); •murder for remuneration; (basically murder for hire) •https://tarlton.law.utexas.edu/texas-death-penalty

  • 11. • Death Penalty Death Penalty in Texas Texas Procedure Generally In Texas, a person must be of at least 18 years of age at the time of the crime to have the death penalty imposed upon him or her. After the verdict is rendered, if the defendant is found guilty, the case is automatically appealed to the Court of Criminal Appeals. If the prisoner loses in the Court of Criminal Appeals, he/she may then appeal (on their own) the case to the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, If the prisoner loses in U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, the prisoner may then (on their own) finally appeal to the United States Supreme Court. •https://tarlton.law.utexas.edu/texas-death-penalty
  • 12. • Death Penalty Method of Execution Between 1819 and 1923, Texas executed its Death Row prisoners by hanging. From 1924 to 1977, the electric chair became the legal means of execution. In 1977, execution by lethal injection became the legal method of enacting the death penalty in Texas. The first prisoner executed by lethal injection in the United States took place in Texas in 1982. https://tarlton.law.utexas.edu/texas-death-penalty

  • 16. • Death Penalty Methods of Execution States electing to put capital convicted felons to death by lethal injection use a solution consisting of sodium thiopental (a lethal dose to sedate the person), pancuronium bromide (a muscle relaxant which collapses the diaphragm and lungs), and potassium chloride (which stops the heartbeat). Other states utilize lethal gas, electrocution, hanging, or a firing squad. https://tarlton.law.utexas.edu/texas-death-penalty
  • 17. • Death Penalty Moral Issue? Political Issue? Costly Issue! Capital punishment is seen as: A Moral Issue A Political Issue A Costly Issue It remains a controversial topic in the United States, as to whether it is right to execute human beings, and also due to the financial and mental costs of keeping prisoners on death rows while they appeal their cases. Most people agree that crime is an issue, and that violent crimes need to be more severely punished, but research shows that capital punishment is NOT a significant crime deterrent.
