You can be put to death by lethal injection! This is the ruling of the United States Supreme Court. The court ruled a few weeks ago that it was constitutional for states to execute certain condemned criminals, as long as the procedure was done properly.
States had halted executions for seven months, so this issue could be decided by the Supreme Court. In California violent felony convictions, there was a two year halt to executions. Many legal experts feel that this latest ruling will now allow California to continue to execute criminals by the end of the year. Nonetheless, as of right now, there is still a moratorium on executions in California.
Currently, there are 650 people on Death Row in California. Of these 650 people, five have exhausted all of their appeals and are eligible to be executed when and/or if the moratorium is lifted. The issue is certainly highly controversial and will continue to be debated in California.
