Ron Lafferty’s time on death row has cost the state of Utah millions of dollars.

Thirty-four years on death row and the sentence of death by a firing squad was never carried out. The family of the victims never had “closure” of the killings of their loved ones.

Either set a time limit on the death penalty (six months at the most for appeals) or give a life sentence without parole. Prisoners are costing us money that can be spent on our infrastructure.
