Illinois has been at the center of the reexamination of the death penalty since the exoneration of over a dozen death row inmates led to the exposure of shocking and systemic flaws in its criminal justice system.
The purpose of this report, prepared by the Illinois Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty, is to review the course of the death penalty in Illinois in the year since the Governor Ryan granted pardons to four innocent death row inmates and commuted the sentences of all other condemned inmates in Illinois.
Religious leaders across Illinois had urged Ryan to commute all death sentences, and the move was hailed by groups such as the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, the Catholic Conference of Illinois and the Jewish Federation of Metro Chicago.
