My friend, and Beccaria contributor, Jan Williams interviewed by the Whittier Daily News about the new CA death penalty ruling.

From the article:

“The way the death penalty system works in California, in my mind, it was more life without parole,” Jan said, adding that prolonged appeals and numerous court hearings make it difficult for grieving family members.

“The whole thing is hard on the families, the victim’s family and her family, also, has to be on pins and needles wondering how this thing is going to end and that’s no way for either side to live,” Jan said.
