Voices of Experience

Voices of Experience
Capital punishment has been in the news quite a bit lately across the nation and especially here in Ohio. On May 1st, 2014 the Ohio Supreme Court Joint Task Force to Review the Administration of Ohio’s Death Penalty published its findings, including 56 recommendations designed to increase the fairness and accuracy of the death penalty in our state. What are the recommendations, why do they matter and what does all of this have to do with you?

OTSE’s Voices of Experience tour brings together exonerees, former members of law enforcement, murder victim’s family members, and members of the Ohio Supreme Court Task Force to explore the 56 recommendations and how important they are in building a path to a fairer criminal justice system in Ohio.
