October 16, 2010 - The Death Penalty

Join The Babes for an inside look at the life of death row attorney, David Dow, and the firsthand chilling tale of life on death row from Kirk Bloodsworth, the first death row inmate exonerated by DNA evidence.

Joining The Babes is David Dow, death penalty lawyer, distinguished professor at the University of Houston Law Center and Litigation Director at the Texas Defender Service. As an appellate attorney, David has represented more than 100 death-row inmates over the past twenty years.

In his new book "The Autobiography of an Execution," David Dow has written a deeply personal story about justice, or lack thereof, the death penalty and a lawyer's life.

Next, The Babes speak with Kirk Bloodsworth, a native of Cambridge, Maryland, who discusses his harrowing life as a death row inmate. In 1984, Kirk Bloodsworth was charged with the rape and murder of a nine year old girl. He was tried, convicted, and sentenced to die in Maryland's gas chamber.

An honorably discharged Marine, Kirk Bloodsworth proclaimed his innocence from the beginning, and after nine long years in one of the harshest prisons in America, he became the first death row inmate to be exonerated by DNA evidence in the United States.
