Part II of a study by the Harvard Law School Fair Punishment Project was released October 12, 2016. Entitled Too Broken to Fix: An In-depth Look at America’s Outlier Death Penalty Counties, the study identified 16 out of 3000+ counties across the nation that handed down five or more death sentences from 2010-2015. Four of these “outlier” counties are in the state of Florida. Part II of the study scrutinized court records of Hillsborough, Pinellas and Miami-Dade counties.
