Sam Milsap, the former Bexar County DA, will speak on March 12 at the Anti-Death Penalty Alternative Spring Break. Milsap prosecuted Ruben Cantu, but now believes that Cantu may have been innocent of the crime for which he was executed in 1993.
Mr Milsap will speak from 6 – 7 PM in a room to be announced on the UT-Austin campus. The public is welcome to attend. It is free.
Mr Milsap will discuss the Cantu case and the issue of innocence and the death penalty.
There will be a “Day of Innocence” rally and Death Penalty Issues Lobby Day at the Texas capitol on Tuesday, March 13, 2007. The rally starts at noon on the South Steps of the capitol.
