After a 30-month review, a legal panel has recommended that Ohio temporarily halts executions until a thorough review is conducted to assess administration of capital punishment in the state. The recommendation comes from a panel of legal experts working as part of the American Bar Association’s Death Penalty Moratorium Implementation Project. The team found that Ohio fully complies with only four out of 93 protocols developed by the ABA to assess death penalty jurisprudence. The panel said the system is flawed due to a number of inadequate procedures to protect defendants, including failure to provide adequate legal services to all capital defendants and death row inmates, and racial and geographic disparities in capital sentencing. Ohio is the seventh of eight states being assessed under the ABA project, which developed protocols in 2001. Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Indiana and Tennessee also have been assessed. Pennsylvania will be the last state to be assessed.
