Today in The Washington Post, Robert Barnes reports that “Court Won’t Reconsider Ban on Execution for Child Rape.”

David G. Savage of The Los Angeles Times reports that “Supreme Court upholds death penalty ban in the rape of a child; A five-justice majority says the court’s ruling barring capital punishment in the rape of a child will stand, despite a military law allowing the death penalty in such cases.”

Warren Richey of The Christian Science Monitor reports that “Despite gaffe, Supreme Court won’t revisit landmark child-rape ruling; Five justices footnote their June opinion about a ‘national consensus’ against using the death penalty for child rapists.”
