Default Use Of The Death Penalty In U.S. Near A 25-Year Low, Report Finds

Use Of The Death Penalty In U.S. Near A 25-Year Low, Report Finds

"As public support for the death penalty wanes, the number of executions and projected death sentences in 2017 rose only slightly, remaining at nearly 25-year lows, according to the annual report released Thursday by the Death Penalty Information Center.

There were 23 executions this year, the center says. Over the past 25 years, only last year's total, 20, was lower.

Including three pending cases, 39 death sentences are expected to be handed down this year, according to the DPIC, which tracks data about the death penalty and has criticized the practice of capital punishment in America. That's the second-lowest death sentence total in 45 years. Again, only 2016 saw fewer sentences, with 31."
