      Judge Rules CA Death Penalty Unconstitutional Because It Takes Too Long

      A federal judge ruled has now ruled California's death penalty unconstitutional.

      The judge cited the time it takes from sentencing, to carrying out the death penalty.

      That was ruled a violation of the eighth amendment's protection against cruel and unusual punishment.

      California put a moratorium on the death penalty in 2006 and hasn't executed anyone since then.

      There are 742 people on death row in the state right now.
