Capital punishment has been controversial since the Constitution was written, and politicians and prosecutors have profited from its exploitation over many years. But how much do you know about the lawyers who handle the cases, or the judges who preside? Indeed, how much do you know about the men and occasional women who are charged with capital crimes?
