Krystal Wein Ethics Capital punishment is a serious issue. One of the most important debates is what if the accused party is innocent. There has been one hundred and thirty eight people since 1973 over twenty six states that have been released from death row due to findings of evidence that proved they were innocent. There has been two hundred and twenty six people exonerated in the history of the United States(1) From 2000 to 2007 there has been on average five people that were released every year. That’s about thirty five people that would have died for a crime they did not commit. The following are the people since 1973 that have been proven innocent and how long they spent in jail: David Keaton-two years Samuel Poole-one year Wilbert Lee–twelve years Freddie Pitts–twelve years Christopher Spicer-two years James Creamer-two years Thomas Gladish-two years Richard Greer-two years Ronald Keine-two years Clarence Smith-two years Delber Tibbs-three years Earl Charles-three years Jonathan Treadway-three years Gary Beeman-three years Jerry Banks-five years Larry Hicks-two years Charles Ray Giddens-three years Michael Linder-two years Johnny Ross-six years Ernes Graham-five years Annibal Jaramillo-one year Lawyer Johnson-eleven years Larry Fisher-one year Anthony Brown-three years Neil Ferber-four years Clifford Henry Bowen-five years Joseph Green Brown-thirteen years Perry Cobb-eight years Darby Tillis-eight years Vernon McManus-ten years Anthony Ray Peek-nine years Juan Ramos-four years Robert Wallace-seven years Richard Neal Jones-four years Willie Brown-five years
