Former Death Row inmate to speak at Leeds
A former prisoner on Death Row will speak via video link to students next Wednesday.
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be on death row?
Next week a former death row inmate will be telling his story and answering questions at Leeds Uni through a live video link.
Ray Krone was sentenced to death in 1992 for the murder of Kim Ancrona in Pheonix, Arizona and spent 10 years in prison, including two on death row.
In 2002, however, DNA evidence proved he was not guilty.
Since then Krone has devoted himself to campaigning against the death-penalty.
Krone is the 100th former death row inmate to be released in the United States since the reinstation of the death penalty there in 1976. The death penalty is currently a legal sentence in 32 states.
The video-link will be at the Business School Western Lecture Theatre from 6:30pm on Wednesday 26th February, in an event organised by the LUU Anti-Death Penalty Society.
You can sign up for a place here. Tickets are £2 on the door.
