Death Penalty Discussion at Plymouth State University’s Sidore Lecture Series April 4

March 29th, 2011 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, N.H.-
Research shows that most people have a definite opinion about the death penalty, even though they know little about it. Join Robert M. Bohm, Professor of Criminal Justice at the University of Central Florida and fellow of the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences, Monday, April 4, 7 p.m. in the Smith Recital Hall at Plymouth State University as he presents, “Do We Need the Death Penalty?” as part of the Saul O Sidore Lecture Series.
Bohm’s lecture will address the many reasons given in support of the death penalty, the evidence that contradicts those reasons, and why those reasons do not justify the continued use of the death penalty in the United States.</p.

All Sidore lectures are free and open to the public, but reservations are recommended. A reception follows each lecture. For reservations or to arrange special accommodations, call (603) 535-ARTS.
