Conversation about the Death Penalty with Judy Catterton

Judy Catterton, an experienced attorney, will be discussing her own thoughts, research, and experience with capital punishment throughout her career. Insight will be provided into the history, debate, and current practice of the death penalty, using the book "Just Mercy" by Bryan Stevenson as a jumping-off point. Join us for what promises to be an informative and engaging conversation! Refreshments and libations will be provided.

Catterton practiced law in the DC area for over 35 years, where she served as a prosecutor and chief of a Major Offender Bureau before becoming a partner in Catteron, Kemp and Mason. She served as a president of the Maryland Criminal Defense Attorneys Association, was a consultant to the Maryland Office of the Public Defender, and is a fellow in the American College of Trial Lawyers, an organization that allows only 1% of all a state's lawyers to be nominated. Catterton taught criminal procedure and trial practice, has lectured extensively, and is considered an expert on capital punishment. She now writes and publishes essays describing her work with death row inmates.

This event is happening in conjunction with Rehoboth Reads, a one-book, one-community project taking place in and around Rehoboth Beach, DE in early 2019. For more information, click here.
