Talk – 'Arbitrary Death: A Prosecutor's Perspective on the Death Penalty'

Wednesday, September 11, 2019 - 6:30pm

Please join us for a conversation with prosecutor and University of Arizona law professor of practice Rick Unklesbay about his book, "Arbitrary Death: A Prosecutor's Perspective on the Death Penalty."

Unklesbay has tried over 100 murder cases, and 16 people whose cases he tried received the death sentence. He now argues that the death penalty doesn't work and that our system is fundamentally flawed.

Professor Jason Kreag will lead the discussion with Unklesbay about the book, how his opinions on capital punishment evolved throughout his career, and his arguments for why it should be abandoned.

Unklesbay's book will be for sale at the event, and all proceeds of the sales will go to Homicide Survivors, a Tucson non-profit.
