Death Penalty Investigator Sentenced to Five Years

Kathleen Culhane, a death-penalty investigator, was sentenced to five years in prison for falsifying documents which lead to delays in several executions she investigated.

Ms. Culhane admitted to falsifying the statements of former jurors, witnesses, and even a police officer in four death-penalty cases. Although Ms. Culhane says she is not sorry for what she did, her actions have undermined the legal process and hurt those jurors and witnesses whose statements she fabricated.
