Legislation Would Allow Death Penalty for Repeat Child Molesters (Apr 11, 2006)
Early last month, the Oklahoma Senate passed a bill that would give juries the option of sentencing repeat child molesters to life imprisonment or the death penalty. If the measure receives full approval in the House and is signed by Governor Henry, Oklahoma could become one of only two states in the nation to allow the death penalty for non-homicide related crimes. Opponents of the legislation say it would be unlikely to pass constitutional muster, but advocates say Oklahoma has a moral obligation to do everything it can to protect the safety of its children. Guests include Senator Jay Paul Gumm (D-Durant), OU Law Professor Randy Coyne, and Rick Kishur, a counselor to sex offenders (approx. 7 minutes).
