Utah bill could allow executions of human traffickers

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 02/03/2016 - 07:57

FILE - In this March 2, 2015, file photo, Republican Rep. Paul Ray, of Clearfield, votes on the Utah House floor, in Salt Lake City. Death penalty opponents say the Utah lawmaker's proposal allowing the state to execute someone convicted of human trafficking even if the criminal didn't actually kill the victim would be unjust, costly and unconstitutional. The proposal from Ray would make human trafficking a capital crime if the victim dies. Under current Utah law, someone convicted of trafficking that results in a victim's death will face five years to life in prison. The Washington, D.C.,-based Death Penalty Information Center says Ray's bill is likely unconstitutional. (AP Photo/Rick Bowmer, File)SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A proposal approved by a panel of Utah lawmakers Tuesday could allow the state to execute someone convicted of human trafficking if the victim later dies because of the crime.
