Join us in room 250 for the first of many events in our Criminal Justice Series! We will be having capital defense attorney
Susan Corey come and speak about the Hidalgo v. Arizona case. Lunch will be provided and we are planning on live streaming this event.
After more than four months of conferencing whether to hear a case questioning the constitutionality of the death penalty in Arizona and in the U.S., the Supreme Court of the United States denied to hear Hidalgo v. Arizona.
The court issued their response on March 19 affirming Arizona’s Supreme Court convictions and sentencing of defendant Abel Hidalgo. Hidalgo was convicted of the January 2001 murder of Michael Cordova after being hired for a $1,000 from a gang member. Hidalgo subsequently murdered Jose Rojas, who happened to be with Cordova at the time.
