Push for death penalty elimination continues with upcoming legislation

Current and former legislators, religious leaders and advocacy groups came together Wednesday to announce an upcoming bill to eliminate the death penalty in Ohio.

State Sen. Nickie Antonio, D-Lakewood, brought the groups together to promote the concept of life without parole being the highest criminal punishment in the state. The legislator has introduced a bill on the topic in every general assembly during her tenure.

“I believe we as a society must be better than the worst criminals and our flawed criminal justice system,” Antonio said.

Planned joint sponsors on the bill are Sen. Peggy Lehner, R-Kettering, and Sen. Kristina Roegner, R-Hudson. Roegner said she had a “change of heart” in her beliefs on the death penalty.
