Sentenced to Death Because He’s Gay?

March 28th, 2019

On this episode LeGaL Executive Director Eric Lesh speaks with Lambda Legal Senior Attorney Ethan Rice. At issue is a brief that Lambda Legal, the ACLU, and ACLU South Dakota filed with the Supreme Court in the case of Rhines v. Young. The brief argues that anti-gay juror bias in-part motivated the South Dakota jury’s decision to sentence Charles Rhines to death. We also chat about the experiences of LGBT people in the court system.
