Speaking Engagements

Recently spoke at the Merritt Island Breakfast Rotary Club’s January 11th meeting.

The topic was on the finality of the death penalty, its lack of deterence value to prevent future crimes and the possibility of mistakes.

The penalty of death was passed in Florida in 1972. Florida was the first state to put a prisoner unwillingly to death; 1979 John Spenkelink. To date, 71 people have been put to death in Florida and 399 are on death row.

There have been two exonerations in Florida. William Dillon (wrongfully served 27 years – $800k settlement) and Wilton Dedge (wrongfully served 23 years). Nationwide there have been 139 exonerations, 23 of which have been in Florida. Mistaken identity accounts for 70% of all wrongful incarcerations. If you are sentenced to life in prison in Florida, that means you die in jail. Mr. Chang has tried 230 jury trials and won about 90% of them.
