Behind the Walls


Jan 9, 2019

In her seven years on the state's highest criminal court, ex-Judge Elsa Alcala became best known as the voice questioning capital punishment, even in the state most enamored of it. In this "Behind the Walls" interview, the recently retired judge - who left the bench just over a week ago - asks whether it's time for a death penalty moratorium in the Lone Star State. The former jurist also questions the direction of today's Republican Party, talks about the high-profile Bobby Moore case, and offers a look into her childhood as an orphan raised by her older siblings.
