California Debates New Regulations on Lethal Injections

Hosted by

There are 680 condemned inmates on San Quentin’s Death Row, but legal challenges have prevented any executions for three years. A federal judge ruled that new regulations were needed to avoid cruel and unusual punishment. A state judge ordered that the regulations be subject to 45 days of public comment. Today, the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation held a hearing, and Sam Stanton was there for the Sacramento Bee.
