Summary
The Supreme Court's landmark decision that it is unconstitutional to execute people who are mentally retarded reverses decades of jurisprudence. In this program, ABC News correspondent John Donvan visits the ongoing legal battle that prompted the initial 1980 ruling, the case of Texas convict John Paul Penry. Argument rages not over Penry's guilt but what determines mental retardation. Commenting on the case are Joe Price, prosecutor in all of Penry's trials, and Texas State Senator Rodney Ellis. In the studio, Joshua Marquis, an Oregon district attorney, and Joanmarie Davoli, a defense attorney for eleven years who represented mentally impaired defendants in murder cases, debate one of today's most challenging issues
