Many people do not realize that carrying out a single death sentence for a criminal costs 2 to 5 times more than that putting that same criminal in prison for the rest of his or her life, This is due to the costs, which include but are not limited to, investigation costs, cost of processing evidence, substantial lawyer fees, amount of trials, number of extensive appeals, substantial security costs, and incarceration costs.
