Title: A Closer Look At Race, Capital, And Sentencing: An Examination Of Race And Death Penalty Post-Furman and Gregg decisions from 1977-2011
Author: Khodayari, Michael R.
Abstract: The aim of this thesis is to study racial disparity in capital sentencing since Gregg and Furman decisions from 1977-2011. The data used in this study came from execution in the United States, 1608-2002 (the ESPY file) and death penalty information center, 2003-2011. The findings of the data suggest that there is a relationship between the race of the victim and the race of the offender in the capital sentencing. Most of the empirical literature to date examined in the study also conclude that race is a determining factor in capital punishment cases.
