Default CA Govenor places moratorium on death penalty cases

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — The 737 inmates on California's largest-in-the-nation death row are getting a reprieve from Gov. Gavin Newsom, who plans to sign an executive order Wednesday placing a moratorium on executions.
Newsom also is withdrawing the lethal injection regulations that death penalty opponents already have tied up in courts and shuttering the new execution chamber at San Quentin State Prison that has never been used.

Am happy for this hopefully he can get off D/R but I think LWOP is better any day. He might have more freedom & they get family visits from what I heard. But I pray one day he'll come home

and for the old timers who have been living in a single cell, now they will get a cell mate and be out in general population which might prove a bit difficult for some. And then there is the question of legal help - if you are on death row, I think the state pays your attorney's fees, now if there is no death penalty, will they have to pay for their own lawyers if they are in the appeal process? It certainly beats living under the penalty of death but there will be other problems for them to contend with I am sure.

I think it should be made clear that this a moratorium on executions. The people in California have voted twice now the past 10-15 years or so to keep the death penalty. It still exists. Executions are halted (not that any have occurred since 2006.) Everyone is still on Death Row that was there before and still faces eventual execution and the same restrictions.
