What Is it Like on Death Row?

According to the Florida Department of Corrections, the average length of stay on Death Row is 13.22 years with an average 14.12 years between the alleged offense and the execution. The daily routine for all inmates remains very similar from day to day. They receive meals at 5 a.m., 10:30 a.m. and then again at 4 p.m.

All inmates are permitted to shower every other day; they are also allowed to receive mail every day with the exception of holidays and weekends. In their cells, they are allowed a 13 inch television, along with snacks and radios. They are not permitted to smoke cigarettes or use tobacco of any kind. They are not permitted to have cable television or air-conditioning and are not allowed to socialize together in a common room.

Thomas & Paulk: Defending Violent Crime Charges

The death penalty is reserved for only the most extreme of criminal offenses; for example, capital murder. At Thomas & Paulk, P.A., we recognize that these are the most serious of cases with difficult factors involved. If you are facing a violent crime charge that could potentially result in the death penalty, you need more than the average attorney. At our firm, we strongly believe that you should not unjustly face such a penalty. Unfortunately, innocent people have ended up on Death Row before.

The Innocence Project, a national organization committed to helping the wrongfully accused be exonerated, states that 17 people have been found innocent after having spent time on Death Row. We don't ever want it to get this far. If you have been accused and are looking for an aggressive attorney to protect not only your future, but your life, you should not hesitate to contact us as soon as possible. With more than 20 years of collective experience and over 7,000 criminal cases, you can trust in the hands-on experience that our firm has garnered.
