Description

According to the Death Penalty Information Center, there are currently 103 foreign nationals under a sentence of death in the U.S.  What happens when a foreign national finds themselves face to face with the ultimate criminal penalty in the United States?  What entities are involved?  Which laws apply? How does this intersect with international treaties and extradition?

To help us understand the situation better, we have on the show today, Patrick F. McCann.  
Patrick is a retired former Navy officer, with both active and Reserve service.  He has served as the  President of the Harris County Criminal Lawyers Association and as a  Director of the Fort Bend County Criminal Lawyers Association.  He handles all manner of trial, appellate, and post-conviction matters at the state and federal level, including complex white collar and drug cases.
