Is there the risk that this is an ex post facto law since the original punishment set by law was the chair?
However, I think that other states which have switched have left the old method as an option for inmates sentenced before the effective change in execution method. They've done so precisely in order to avoid ex post facto claims. I suppose the question might be is an inmate sentenced to death period? Or is he/she sentenced to death by a particular method?
I wish that Sen. Nantkes would just be honest and says that she's four-square against the death penalty instead of creating this phony issue of cost when Nebraska has less than ten guys on death row.
