Texas Judge to Put Death Penalty on Trial

The Texas judge who ruled that the Lone Star State’s death penalty violates basic constitutional rights has revised his order.  Last week,  District Judge Kevin Fine of Houston flatly declared that Texas’ capital punishment statute is unconstitutional because it risks executing the innocent.  

Today, he rescinded that ruling, but scheduled an April 27 hearing at which both prosecutors and defense lawyers will make their case for and against the Texas death penalty.
