Corrections for the Week of August 25

Statistics on inmates on death row.


In our August 18 story "Are Capital Punishment's Financial Costs Worth It?" we attributed a statement that it costs an extra $90,000 a year to house an inmate on death row to the American Civil Liberties Union. But the ACLU is unable to provide any source for this figure. Also, the number of inmates on California death row is 706, not 705.
