The History of The Death Penalty in Texas
Recently, ABA Journals, The Modern Law Library launched an episode of their podcast interviewing Maurice Chammah.
Maurice Chammah is a journalist and staff writer for the Marshall Project. His reporting on the criminal justice system has been published by the New Yorker, the New York Times, the Atlantic, Esquire and Mother Jones.
This brilliant podcast discusses his new book, Let the Law Sort Them, The Rise and Fall of The Death Penalty. It discusses not only the contents of his book but focuses heavily on the history of the death penalty, including the issue of innocent people on death row. We highly recommend giving this a listen if you would like to know more about the history of the system that has tormented Rob for two decades.
