The following is a list of notable people on death row by state and federal/military jurisdiction in the United States.

In 1973, there were just 134 inmates on death row throughout the country. In 1982, that number rose to 1,050 inmates. Since 1982, the population of death row prisoners has been steadily increasing and has never dropped below 1,000 inmates. There are 3,125 people total on death row in America. 733 of these inmates belong to California. California has the highest population of condemned prisoners in all of the 50 states. Following California is Florida with 413 death row inmates, Texas with 300, and Pennsylvania with 202 inmates awaiting death. Fifteen states in America do not have any inmates on death row. The United States government has sentenced 61 people to death, the United States military has sentenced 5 people to death, and Wyoming and New Hampshire have one inmate each awaiting death. Of all the inmates on death row in America, 3,200 (98.13%) are male, and just 61 (1.87%) are female. 44% of these inmates are White, 41% are Black, 12% are Latino/Latina, 1.13% are Native American, 1.26% are Asian, and the race of .03% of the inmates is unknown.[1]

Abolished[edit]

Eighteen states have abolished their death penalty; federal cases there, Washington D.C., and the U.S. territories of American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Northern Mariana Islands, and the U.S. Virgin Islands may still have death penalty verdicts and sentences. New Mexico replaced its death penalty with a sentence of life without parole, but its law doing so did not address those already convicted, cases in progress, or crimes committed before its enactment; there are two inmates with a death sentence there. The jurisdictions without the death penalty, listed by year of repeal are Michigan (1 May 18, 1846); Wisconsin (2nd 1853); Maine (3rd 1887); Minnesota (4th 1911); Puerto Rico (constitutionally in 1929); Hawaii (5th 1948 - prior to statehood); Alaska (6th 1957 - prior to statehood); Vermont (with the exception of a lingering statute for treason -1964); Iowa & West Virginia (1965); North Dakota (1973); Washington, D.C. (1981); Massachusetts (ruled unconstitutional) & Rhode Island (1984); New Jersey & New York (ruled unconstitutional - 2007); New Mexico (2009); Illinois (2011); Connecticut (2012); Maryland (2013).

United States Military[edit]

Although early and wartime records may be incomplete, the U.S. military has conducted at least 1206 executions since 1775 (although only 10 since 1951). Inmates are confined at the United States Disciplinary Barracks, located at Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas and managed by the United States Army Corrections Command; women (there are none now) would be confined at the Naval Consolidated Brig in San Diego, California. Any U.S. Military execution order must be signed by the President of the United States [Article 71(a) of the Uniform Code of Military Justice], who is also the sole appeal, clemency, and pardon authority for the death sentence. The current method of executions is lethal injection. The most recent execution was John Arthur Bennett, by hanging, on April 13, 1961.

Idaho[edit]

Idaho has executed 29 people since 1864 (including 14 since it became a state in 1890), but only three since 1957; Keith Eugene Wells, who ceased his appeals and was executed by lethal injection in 1994, Paul Ezra Rhoades, executed in November 2011 after 24 years spent on death row[7] and Richard Leavitt who was executed by lethal injection on June 12, 2012. Hanging was used until the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the death penalty nationally in 1972. Firing squad could have been chosen by the inmate, or if lethal injection was deemed problematic, but had never been used and was discontinued in 2009. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 2003 that Idaho's sentencing in death penalty cases has to be done by the jury, not the judge. Males on death row are housed at the Idaho Maximum Security Institution.

New Mexico has conducted 74 executions (only one since 1976). On March 18, 2009, New Mexico became the 15th state without a death penalty when then-Governor Bill Richardson signed the law replacing New Mexico's death penalty with life without parole.[30] The law was not made retroactive; the two inmates on death row at the time remain there, although no further executions have been performed; crimes committed before the repeal may still result in a death penalty sentence (pending review). New Mexico does not house death row inmates at a consolidated facility. Executions are conducted at the Penitentiary of New Mexico in Santa Fe; the state's most recent execution was Terry Doug Clark by lethal injection on November 6, 2001.
