Karla Faye Tucker killed two people in 1983. Tucker confessed to the crime, and was executed in 1998. The interesting thing about Tucker’s case, however, is that she claimed to have turned her life around while in prison. She was no longer using drugs, had found religion, and had even gotten married. But none of this was enough to change her sentencing from execution to life in prison. The point of incarceration is to rehabilitate criminals, and anyone could look at Tucker’s case and see a big change from her drug using and murderous lifestyle, and the more stable and positive lifestyle she had in her later years. Unfortunately, even though she was able to find the right path, that does not cancel out the fact that she murdered two people. This is why Tucker’s execution was justified.
