Religious beliefs at core of death penalty opposition

Maryangela Layman Roman, in our Catholic Herald, interviews Jeff Sweetland, an attorney who once represented a defendant convicted of murder and eventually executed. Mr. Sweetland works with the Death Penalty Project of Milwaukee's Catholics for Peace and Justice.
