[3/5/19] – Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Death Row Inmate with Dementia
The U.S. Supreme Court sent a death-row case back to the lower courts on February 27th, ruling in favor of Vernon Madison, a death row inmate who claims he can no longer remember his crime due to vascular dementia. According to the ruling, the state of Alabama cannot execute a convicted murderer who cannot remember the crime due to a mental disorder. It is now up to the Alabama court to evaluate Madison’s understanding of the punishment. The ruling demonstrates how the Eighth Amendment’s protection against cruel and unusual punishment is applied to inmates, and it highlights the contentious nature of capital punishment in the United States.
