Joan Cheever
Back from the Dead: one Womanís Search for the men who walked off Americaís death row
John Wiley, 2006

HV6785.C44 2006

Joan Cheever was co-counsel for Walter Williams, a Texas death row inmate and successfully stayed his execution until October 1994. At her clientís request she stood next to him at his execution and the experience would change her life dramatically. Cheever wondered whether Williams would have killed again if he had his death sentence reversed and was paroled. She embarks on a dangerous journey to meet the former death row inmates who in 1972 had their death sentences commuted to life as a result of the United States Supreme Courtís declaration that the death penalty was unconstitutional. Cheever would discover that many former inmates were leading productive lives while a small portion actually did kill again.
