10.18.17 - Rep. Antonio Renews Call To Abolish The Death Penalty In Ohio

 

State Rep. Nickie Antonio (D-Lakewood) today introduced legislation to abolish the death penalty and replace it with a life sentence without parole.

“The death penalty is a punishment that has shown to be administered with disparities across economical and racial lines, while also failing to deter violent crime,” said Antonio. “I continue to believe that our best move for death penalty reform in Ohio is to abolish the use of capital punishment and replace it with a sentence of life without parole. I truly believe Ohioans’ taxpayer dollars would be better spent pursuing constructive, positive policies that enhance the quality of life in our local communities.”
