Legal Analyst: JIM SKELTON, a legal educator, retired attorney and native Texan who has seen capital trials as a prosecutor and a defense attorney. Also, Houston criminal defense attorneys SUSAN ASHLEY, LARRY DOUGLAS, MICHAEL GILLESPIE & JACK LEE.
Featured interview guest: PROF. KEVIN BARRY, Quinnipiac University School of Law, who predicts that the Connecticut Supreme Court, which is poised to be the first court in nearly a century to rule on whether the state may outlaw the death penalty for new crimes yet keep it on the books for those already committed, will allow the executions to go forward. Other states facing the post-repeal dilemma are New Mexico, Maryland, Kansas and Delaware.
