U.S. Supreme Court: Florida Death Penalty Sentencing is Unconstitutional

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Tuesday, January 12, that a Florida death row inmate’s sentencing was unconstitutional. The issue is that, although a jury recommended the death penalty for Timothy Lee Hurst, the judge in the case held a separate hearing and determined there were sufficient aggravating circumstances to impose the death penalty, CNN reports.
