John Roman, PhD Biography

Senior Fellow at the Urban Institute and Executive Director of the District of Columbia Crime Policy Institute
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should the Death Penalty Be Legal?"

“John K. Roman, a senior research associate who presented the Urban Institute study to the commission, said his organization was not advocating the repeal or continuation of capital punishment. Rather, he said, he wanted commission members to be more fully informed of the policy implications of maintaining ‘a death penalty regime’ in Maryland.”
