This paper presents a brief synopsis of the many issues at stake with both death penalty appeals and the statute of limitations issues. Most of these issues are financial and ethical. The paper contends that death row inmates take up enormous amounts of taxpayer resources. Their appeals cases add to that amount, as most inmates require the assistance of state-funded attorneys in filing their appeals. To speed up the appeals process would minimize most costs associated with keeping inmates on death row longer than is necessary. The paper claims that, similarly, unlimited statutes of limitations for any crime uses up taxpayer resources and can be burdensome on the legal system in general. The paper examines the need to take into account the costs associated with both death penalty and sex-offender cases to come up with a reasonable and constitutional compromise.
