  • Sr Helen Prejean has accompanied five men to execution since she began her work in 1982. She believes the last two, Dobie Williams in Louisiana and Joseph ODell in Virginia, were innocent, but their juries were blocked from seeing all the evidence and their defence teams were incompetent. The readers of this book will be the first "jury" with access to all the evidence the trail juries never saw, she says. The Death of Innocents shows how race, prosecutorial ambition, poverty and publicity determine who dies and who lives. Prejean raises profound constitutional questions about the legality of the death penalty.
