Death penalty now officially off the books in New Mexico

Alejandra de la Fuente — July 2, 2009 @ 9:52 AM — Comments (3)

A miniature news bite for today, more of a reminder: New Mexico’s abolition of the death penalty took effect yesterday, July 1, 2009. Since yesterday, prosecutors have not been able to seek the death sentence in new indictments.

(The errata reads that they can still seek the death penalty in indictments opened before July 1, and there are at least two of those, and there are two people on death row whose sentences will not be commuted.)
