SD Man Leads Organization Opposed To Death Penalty

SD Man Leads Organization Opposed To Death Penalty
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

A South Dakota man is leading a group in favor of a proposal to repeal the state's death penalty law.

Denny Davis is a Catholic deacon from Burbank who is the director of South Dakotans for Alternatives to the Death Penalty.

Republican Rep. Steve Hickey plans to introduce the bill during the state legislative session. It seeks to have first-degree murder reduced to life in prison without parole.

Davis says that he believes the repeal is not only the right thing to do, but will help save the state thousands of dollars.

The death penalty was reinstated in South Dakota in 1979. Neighboring states like Iowa, North Dakota and Minnesota do not have it.
