Don't Expand Florida's Death Penalty
Multiple bills, SB 450 (Death Penalty), HB 555 (Sentencing Proceedings in Death Penalty Cases), and SB 520/HB 609 (Sentencing for Capital Felonies), proposed by Representative Jacques and Senator Ingoglia, as well as SB 1342/HB 1297 (Capital Sexual Battery), proposed by Representative Baker and Senator Martin, would return Florida to its outlier status by allowing a death sentence when only 8 jurors recommend death and allowing judges to override a jury’s life recommendation. SB 1342/HB 1297 would also allow non-unanimous juries to sentence a defendant to death for a non-homicide crime. Take action today. For more information visit our website.
