Event description

Description

A significant and increasing proportion of those sentenced to death at the Old Bailey were ‘spared the noose’ and instead transported, imprisoned, or given free pardons. This talk explains how the death penalty was gradually abandoned and discusses how, and on what basis, decisions about alternative penal outcomes were made. Speaker: Bob Shoemaker.

Come along early and see the free exhibition at LMA: Criminal Lives, 1780-1925: Punishing Old Bailey Convicts
