Reviewing The Death Penalty

Kentucky’s Supreme Court delved into a case Thursday revolving around whether the death penalty should apply to defendants who committed their crimes between the ages of 18 and 21.The case reached the high court after a lower court judge ruled that applying the death penalty to such defendants amounts to an “unconstitutionally disproportionate punishment.”During arguments in Somerset, Kentucky, Assistant Attorney General Matthew Krygiel urged the Supreme Court to overturn the 2017 ruling by Fayette County Circuit Judge Ernesto Scorsone.
