Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper is about using social science theory and methodology to investigate a “real world” prison murder, eleven years after it was committed. The murder was committed in a for-profit prison. The defendant was charged with having committed capital murder, was subsequently convicted, and was sentenced to death by lethal injection. The first author was retained as a “prison expert” to work on a large defense team preparing to appeal both the murder conviction and the death sentence. His assignment was to reinvestigate the murder. He did so, using social science theory as a guide and social science methodology as his tools.
