9/18/06: Sister Helen Prejean on Capital Punishment


By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – In 1982, Sister Helen Prejean became the spiritual advisor to a man on Louisiana's Death Row and turned the experience into "Dead Man Walking," a best-selling book on morality, justice and the human and spiritual consequences of capital punishment on the accused and society at large. On Monday, Doug talks with Prejean about the death penalty and her life's work to abolish the practice.
