Florida Capital Resource Center is dedicated to ensuring those facing the death penalty receive the proper defense and due process they are guaranteed by the United States and Florida Constitutions. Aside from providing assistance to defense attorneys, this includes providing assistance to judges, thereby promoting the proper conduct of capital trials in Florida's courtrooms. With the recent signing of the Timely Justice Act and an expected increase in the number of death warrants signed, we are once again reminded that death is different.
Here in Judge's Corner, we have assembled some helpful information to provide guidance as you make important decisions affecting the course of capital trials in your courtroom.
We hope you will review these materials so we can all be sure that due process is afforded to those facing the ultimate sentence.
