5. Is Death Penalty Over in Texas?

A district court hearing will be held in Texas on Monday to determine
whether the death penalty is unconstitutional due to the risk of
wrongful convictions. It will be the first time in the state’s history
that a court will examine the issue of innocent people being executed in
the Texas judicial system, according to the Huffington Post. The case
will be brought by lawyers for John Edward Green, Jr. who is charged
will killing a Houston woman during a 2008 robbery. Green’s attorneys
will argue that a number of factors in Texas increase the risk of
wrongful executions. Since 1976, 12 people on the Texas death row have
been exonerated.
