How abolishing the death penalty led to more convictions

[2017-04-20]

The lesson from Victorian England is that juries convict more often when death is not an option.

THOUGH no one has been executed in Britain for over 50 years, until 1998 someone convicted of high treason or “piracy with violence” could in theory be put to death. The law is now clearly against capital punishment, but Britons are not. Fully one-third would like the death penalty to be brought back; the leader of the populist UK Independence Party has suggested a referendum on the matter. Yet research presented at this week’s Royal Economic Society conference suggests that if you really want to be tough on criminals, killing off capital punishment makes sense.
