Deputy District Attorney for the County of Los Angeles and President of the Association of District Attorneys
Pro to the question "Should the Death Penalty Be Allowed?"
"Those in support of abolishing the death penalty point to the possibility of an innocent person being executed... The innocent can take solace in knowing that a unanimous jury of 12 citizens must render the death verdict after an exhaustive trial where the accused murderer is represented by two highly competent attorneys and overseen by an independent judge who ensures a fair trial.
Voters understand that the criminals on death row have been convicted of the most heinous crimes. Voters also realize that those left behind, grieving families throughout California and their loved ones, don't deserve anything less than justice.
Justice is a reformed, not eliminated death penalty."
