As part of their study of the effects of racial, economic, and geographic factors on the impact on the treatment of individuals from arrest to sentencing in the criminal justice system, the League of Women Voters of Geneva is sponsoring an evening discussion on the effects of racial, economic, and geographic factors on the application of the death penalty. Ontario County District Attorney Michael Tantillo, and Robert Zimmerman, a local criminal defense attorney, will provide the public and League members with basic information about New York’s death penalty procedures and their thoughts about its application.
The discussion is at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 15, at the First United Methodist Church, Main Street, Geneva. The event is free and open to the public. Community members are encouraged to attend. For more information contact Kim Reisch at 789-7104.
