Raymond Bonner is a former prosecutor and a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter and writer. He was an investigative reporter and foreign correspondent at The New York Times. Bonner's upcoming book, Anatomy of Injustice: A Murder Case Gone Wrong, focuses on nearly every element in the debate about capital punishment - race, mental retardation, ineffective assistance of counsel, "snitch" testimony, DNA testing, innocence, and prosecutorial misconduct. At this event, Bonner will speak about all these issues, with a special emphasis on prosecutorial misconduct in the South Carolina murder case of Edward Lee Elmore, which is the subject of Bonner's upcoming book. Elmore, 23 years old and mentally retarded, was tried, convicted, and sentenced to death ninety days after the body of a wealthy white widow was found in a closet of her home.

Speaker: Raymond Bonner
Introduction by: George H. Kendall
