dc.description.abstract This paper is a cost analysis that compares the costs of charging, trying, convicting and imposing a sentence of death versus the costs for its alternatives, life in prison without parole (LWOP) and life in prison with the possibility of parole (LPP) when the crime charged (“indictment”) involves one or more instances of aggravated first-degree murder. For the most part, the cost analysis will involve only one option to the death penalty, LWOP; this option is available to prosecutors in death penalty states for the same class of particularly heinous crimes for which a capital indictment is available. en_US
