Prof. Mike Radelet’s most recent paper, The Predictable Disarray: Ignoring the Jury in Florida Death Penalty Cases, was among the ten most frequently downloaded papers last week in Criminal Law/Public Law from SSRN (Social Science Research Network). Also last week, a paper that Radelet coauthored, Race and Death Sentencing for Oklahoma Homicides, 1990-2012, was accepted for publication in Journal of Criminal Law and Criminology. A second paper he coauthored, Have Mercy: New Opportunities for Revisiting and Reversing the Decline in Capital Clemency, was published in late January in Human Rights, a journal published by the American Bar Association. On January 28, Radelet hosted a conference of British death penalty scholars and attorneys in London, supported by a grant that Radelet received from the Proteus Foundation. In mid-January, his latest book (number seven), The History of the Death Penalty in Colorado, was published by University Press of Colorado. He is scheduled to give a presentation about the book at the Tattered Cover (on Colfax) in Denver on March 30. On Wednesday afternoon, Feb. 15, Radelet will testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee in Denver on a bill to abolish the death penalty in Colorado.
