DC Foster Children Get a Boost

This article is about a judge in Maryland who decided that she would not hear victim impact testimony before she decided whether to administer the death penalty. The judge decided this because the statutory factors that must be present to sentence someone to death do not include impact on the victim's family - and in one of my entries last week, I linked to a Slate article that discussed the same question. This article states that the judge reversed herself and has decided to hear the victim impact evidence.
