MADP 2020 Annual Report

We have rounded up our 2020 data and are happy to provide MADP’s 2020 Annual Report.

Highlights include:

  • no new death sentences in 2020,

  • no jury has imposed a death sentence since 2013, and no judge has imposed a death sentence since January 2018,

  • there were 19 pending cases in 2020, a decrease of 60% since 2017.

Missouri is clearly moving away from the belief that death is an appropriate punishment for first-degree murder.
