Blogging on Gary Gauger

I've never previously blogged on Gary Gauger. He's one of the 121 death row exonorees that are on the Death Penalty Information Center's official list.

But today, this news article, printed in a campus newspaper in Utah, caught my eye.

Before 1993, Gary Gauger had only a few minor run-ins with law enforcement officials. Then he was arrested for the murder of his parents.

Twelve years later, another man has confessed to the murder and Gauger has been pardoned. But he wants to make sure the 3 1/2 years he spent on death row for their murders -- and the decades others have spent fearing their lives would be taken for crimes they didn't commit -- doesn't happen to anyone else.

Gauger spoke at Utah Valley State College on Monday as part of Ethics Awareness Week, a series of speeches and forums at the college on topics such as the death penalty, U.S. immigration policy, religion and sexuality and endangered species.

To read the entire piece go here.
