Connecticut is now the 17th State to Abolish the Death Penalty


On Wednesday, April 25, 2012 Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy signed a bill into law that abolishes the death penalty. This makes Connecticut the 17th state in the nation to abandon capital punishment.
The law is effective immediately, however it would not apply to those already sentenced to death. It replaces the death penalty with life in prison, without the possibility of release as the State’s highest form of punishment.
