Eligible for execution : the story of the Daryl Atkins case by Thomas G Walker( Book )

5 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the decision of the U.S. Supreme Court in the case of Atkins v. Virginia. It is the story of Daryl Atkins, who at the age of eighteen participated in a tragic and senseless murder. It is also the story of the victim of that crime, Eric Nesbitt, a young man serving in the U.S. Air Force. The book follows the Atkins case from commission of the crime through the Supreme Court's ruling and its aftermath. Along the way, the story involves law enforcement officers and prosecutors who apprehend and convict criminals as well as defense attorneys who ensure that those accused of crimes are fairly treated. It discusses the roles played by trial and appellate court judges applying criminal statutes and interpreting constitutional provisions. And it also examines the involvement of citizens as witnesses, jurors, or members of organizations with special interests in civil rights and criminal justice issues
